Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2015-07-10 13:46:04 CEST
Our options for disabling local drives on the server today are as follows:

 1. remove the 40-tl-mount-localdrives symlink
 2. remove setuid from tl-mount-personal
 3. remove tl-mount-personal altogether

Option number 1 is the "obvious" solution that fits in with how ThinLinc is configured but it's also unsafe since users can still run tl-mount-localdrives inside their session to mount their local drives.  Options #2 and #3 are variants of the same thing - more or less crippling ThinLinc into not supporting local drives for all users.

It would be nice if there was a way for the server to disable local drives completely, for a user, group or everyone.

Looking ahead, I'm not sure how using FUSE for local drives would affects this.
