I have installed 5 web cameras on different USB ports of the server, installed with windows 20003 enterpriser server edition, configutred with domain and remote desktop (terminal services). I use thin client to boot to the server  using the terminal services and accsiing the server machine.

These 5 web camers are with in front of  5 machines with extended USB cables. Now i want that  when a user acess camera he only get right or could aceess camera in front of his desk  through assigning the  default web camera  though vb script in login script or somehow  if possible..

I do not see how this can be accomplished unless you can password protect each camera separately.

See if the viewer program has this option.

I hope this helps !

I am pretty sure that both of these solutions only offer an all or nothing access to devices, and are not capable of controlling a single USB port at a time.
