Disable file and folder transfers in RWW

You may have noticed in Small Business Servers Remote Web Workplace that when you go to "Connect to my computer at work" that if users click "Optional Settings", one of the options is "

The key was figuring out that rapLinks.userLogonName returned the username of the logged on user.  If it matches what's in the aUsers array then it hides the checkDrives checkbox.  I wanted to hide the label but I haven't figured that one out yet.  The label doesn't have an ID but instead uses <label for="checkDrive...  If you know of a way to hide that programattically, please let me know.  Since it only hides the checkbox, it's sort of an ugly solution but since "Optional Settings" is a somewhat obscure option for most users and since it is functional, I'm okay with it.  I hope it helps you out.  It took me almost 1/2 a day to figure it out.




Change SBS Company Name

Had one today that I just haven't bumped in before...how do you change the SBS 2003 company name?  During the install process, you tell SBS your company name and this is displayed when users get to the login page for Remote Workplace.  Turns out, a simple registry change is required to make the change.  Just edit the following...

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ RegisteredOrganization

I found this in the SBS 2003 troubleshooting guide but it took me some Googling to get to it so I thought I'd post it in the hopes of helping others.
