I am working on a project that may call for thin clients connecting via RDP to a terminal server environment in which I will need to use a barcode scanner (either USB or Serial) at the station to scan a barcode to the terminal server session.

Can anyone provide any insight or advice?  Have you done this before?  Will it work like I hope it will?

I am looking for someone with some concrete advice (i.e. the thin client you have used with a barcode scanner you have used)

I have used barcode scanners through RDP before.  The device installs as a HID compliant device so it is treated like a keyboard.  Never had any issues with them.

I have also used them...I know are thin client model is hp t5145 but I am not sure of a scanner it was just a usb one.

The hp thin client used hp thin connect os - other than that I just plug it in and scanned every barcode from anything I could find the room and had the numbers pop into an excel spreadsheet...just for the fun of it...because the small scanner was lying in the office.

It did as AAppleton said recgonized as a HID compliant device.
