i can look into that software what i was actually looking for is somthing like a plugin or registry hack for the native remote desktop client also known as mstsc.exe. i was hoping to avoid installing any additional software. it is good to know that this exists but native support is preferable

You can share sound via terminal services. It is under the Local Resources tab.

yeah to be honest this is kind of a tricky situation because the remote computer is windows xp and the remote desktop client is running on a old ibook g4 mac. so i am thinking at this point the client software i am using maby just doesent support it because of the hardware differences between the two machines

What versions of RDP are you using? I would probably just try Teamviewer to be honest, since its cross platform.
