I have a small signature pad connected via serial that we use for loan closings. There are two applications that both use the pad which are run in Citrix. Both applications want exclusive access to the serial port and use a script to first disconnect existing mappings then remap it to the application's session...whichever app launches last wins. I need for both to work while the other is open which is my problem today.
These devices can also use USB so my cunning plan is to use one pad via serial and the other via USB. The only problem now is redirecting the USB port. We're running Citrix Xenapp 4.5 for both web based applications. From what I've read making this work in Citrix may not be possible. If that is the case I'm open to other options like Server 2008 RDP if I can get the signature pad to work.
Please let me know what you think, I am open to any suggestion, thanks!
in your startup script for the app you might be able to assign the same client com port to 2 different local ports in citrix. It is worth a shot.
might try adding something like this to your app script
