I need some help.
I have a program that requires specific encoders hooked up to com1 and com2. If I run this program off of a workstation and have both encoders hooked up to com1 and com2 everything works great. My question is, if I was to publish this application using terminal services and connect to it will it still work properly? I mean with terminal services it uses the server as the main box so if I don't have these encoders physically hooked up to the server it won't work, will it? or is there some sort of a trick that I don't know about.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions....   (this is obviously for a saw in a manufacturing environment)

I know you can do this with Citrix, but have not tried it with TS.
