Serial / Com Port not working in Remote Desktop
Posted on 2010-01-11
I have a Terminal Server that runs my loan software. Users have a Topaz 766 signature pad on their local desktop. I have one computer that refuses to map the local serial port to the remote server. I've tried different users logging into to both local and remote machines. I've tried a new signature pad.
Here is the interesting thing, when I run a program locally to test the signature pad, the program works fine. The disclaimer text shows up on my signature pad and my signature shows up on the computer screen. Exactly what it's suppose to do. However, when I run the same signature pad on the TS server, nothing shows up on the pad or the screen.
And yes, I did check the box to share / map / direct serial / com ports to the remote desktop.
