Use a local USB scanner Canon imageformula p-215 into my RDP session Windows 2008R2

Hi everybody,

I have a local USB scanner Canon imageformula p-215 that I'd like to use into my remote RDS session (Windows 2008R2 Server). The goal is to scan to my application.

Is it possible and how ?

Hi,

yes it is possible if admin dont disable redirect in terminal server.

If no

then in RDP client open options ports and open MORE - alow all there

ater instal drivers x64 bit version in server

Is RemoteFX compliant with a RDS 2008R2 Server ? That is the USB redirection that is important for me...

Jaroslav MrazCTOCommented:
RemoteFX is function for Virtualization of HOSTS VDI and used for graphic performance it is no need for USB Redirect.
