Connect Com port to Terminal Server using Wyse ThinClient and RDP connexion

Hi all!

I have a Wyse Thin Client with Thin OS. The model of the Thin Client is V10L. This Thin Client is configured to establish a RDP connection to a Terminal Server. On this terminal server, I have a program that use com ports.

Is it possible to use the com port on the thin client with my program that runs on the terminal server?

If you plug the device in to the com port on the terminal server, you should be able to see it in all of the terminal services sessions.

Yeah but I want to plug the device on the Thin client and not on the server.

There is a MS solution, but it might not be applicable to your thin client, depending on its OS.

I'm able to enable or disable the serials on port 1, but even if it's checked it doesn't work.

Provided you tell the Wyse OS to connect to the serial port when you connect to the TS, that should be all that is required. Can you confirm that the serial device is communicating properly on the client using hyperterm or something?

The support of wyse told me that my version of the firmware is too low and I need to upgrade it. I'll do it and tell the results here.

The update version was not the solution. I've found a command line that helped me :

net use comX: \\tsclient\com1 (replace X by a number)

This commands maps the local com1 port of the thin to the Terminal Server on com4 (for example). So with my program on the TS, I just have to select the com4 port.

So I guess it doesn't do it automatically like a normal TS connection. Thanks for posting the solution, it will help others with the same problem.
