I use on a WINDOWS XP pc a RDP session to a SBS2008 server.
To the local PC is connected to a scanner on com1
I prefer that the RDP session "sees" the local com1 poort and reads the datastring.
How to setup at RDP-machine  and/or local pc to get this.

If impossible I could run a background program on local pc , reading the datastring from local com1 port
but then how to "push/send" that string "into"  the RDP session

When starting the RDP session, expand Options, go to the Local Resources tab, under Local devices and resources click on More..., ans then select Serial ports. You also need to do some port remapping. See the solution below.
