Use Webcams in terminal services

Hi All,
 I want to dial in to a terminal server and use my local web cam to take pics and then save on the server. What is the best way to handle this ?

Don't think you can use your local webcam in a terminal session. I think the best way is to take the pics and save them on your local drive. When you use TS you have an option to see you local resources (inc drive and printer) within the session - which means you will be able to see your C:\ drive in the terminal session, thus you can copy the pics across.

Alternatively take a screenshot (printScreen) on your local computer, open the terminal services window and you should be able to paste it on the remote computer. Slow but good for one or two pics, else I would follow ormerodrutter.
