Getting Citrix (Xen-App 5.0) session to recognize a bar-code scanner

Heyas,

I have an installed application that needs to run a bar-code scanner on the COM1 serial port. The port works just fine on my Windows desktop but on the Citrix sessions the application never picks it up. I have checked the application has full read/write access to the Citrix session, my AD permissions look fine and when I start the Citrix session it detects the bar-code scanner.

What else should be checking from a Citrix standpoint?

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you.

It's been a while since I saw 5.0.

You didn't get Group Policy integration as I recall but I believe that there are Citrix policies located in the advanced XenApp console.

Check in there that you are allowing COM port redirection.
