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 ?

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

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