Hi everyone,

I have a local USB Plustek smartoffice ps286+ scanner.
I connect to my TSE server (Windows Server 2012 Standard) but my local scanner does not work into my remote RDP session.

My question : is it possible to use WITHOUT any third party software my USB scanner with my RDS 2012 session ? I thought it was possible with the MSTSC option "Connect my USB devices" in the local resources tab...

Thanks

I think, for redirecting USB scanners you need to enable RemoteFX USB Redirection.
