RDS Cameras

We have a POS system that is running over RDS.  We want to run USB cameras or any cameras on the stations and are struggling to get the redirection to work.  Some very knowledgeable guys say we will never get it to work.  There are some third party products out there that you can add on and we may have to do this if that is the only way. The data base is sql if that matters.

Please help us to help you.

What version of OS / RDS are you using?

What OS are your users connecting to RDS from?

What make / model are the USB cameras?

Have you confirmed that the cameras work in the computer they are plugged into?

What steps have you actually tried to do to date? USB redirection etc?

What is the connection between SQL, the POS software and the cameras?

Have you tried going to say a website from on the actual computer the camera is connected to and on RDS?

An example is here: https://www.onlinemictest.com/webcam-test/

Are the cameras even detected properly in the first place? Again, see the URL above, or use one like it.

Do you have USB/Image Capture Device redirection ticked in the RDS client?

Your "question", as phrased is like saying "I took my car to a mechanic because it was broken. He says it will never be fixable. Help"...see the problem? There just isn't enough information to help even begin to formulate an answer.
