When you work in a remote desktop environment, getting access to USB devices plugged into your local machine can be quite problematic. Normally you would have to use workarounds like plugging the USB device into the remote machine directly or having to switch between remote and local session in order to use the device.
USB for Remote Desktop is an application for redirecting USB devices to your remote session. It redirects any USB devices to remote desktop environments over RDP or ICA protocols. The remote server handles redirected USB peripherals as if they were directly plugged into the remote side.
The program consists of Server and Workstation parts.
The Server part is installed on the remote side. Any hardware computer or a virtual machine can serve as a remote side. USB for Remote Desktop Server makes redirected USB devices available for logged in user. The Workstation part is installed on the local computer. It allows redirecting local USB devices to your remote session over RDP or ICA protocols. As soon as you redirect a USB device, it becomes visible in your remote session. Now every time when you login to your remote session you are welcome to use local USB devices.
The program supports a wide range of USB hardware and does not require any special settings.
Be flexible! This is an ideal solution for redirecting USB devices through RDP and ICA protocols. Benefit from working in both of these environments.
USB for Remote Desktop allows USB device redirecting without USB device drivers. You don't have to install them on your local machine as USB devices don't require any drivers for proper redirection.
USB for Remote Desktop works with not just particular types of USB devices. It is compatible with most of them. It is a universal solution for USB device redirection.
USB for Remote Desktop allows you to redirect any newly plugged in USB device automatically. You don't have to divert your attention away from your working process. The program redirects your USB devices by itself every time you plug them in.
To prevent a USB device from auto-redirecting, add it to the blacklist. Thus the blacklisted devices will be accessible on your local computer only and won't be redirected to your remote session automatically.
It doesn't matter what kind of virtual machine you choose, VMware, Hyper-V, VirtualBox or any other. USB for Remote Desktop works perfectly with all of them.
In some cases it is more convenient to redirect not a particular USB device but a USB port. Therefore any USB device plugged into such a USB port will be redirected to your remote session by default.
USB for Remote Desktop is 64-bit and 32-bit compatible. It provides you with easy and flexible way of migration between 64-bit and 32-bit operating systems. You can work as in homogeneous as in heterogeneous environment.
