    According to the documentation I have read, I am led to believe it will not be possible to burn a CD on a USB external burner connected to a WYSE thin client from an RDP session.

    Does anyone know of a work around?

    The only way to do this is to use Wyse TCX USB redirection software.

    Benjamin Elamparo Jr., a WYSE Technical Engineer Support Engineer, has notified me that currently there is no support for CD burning locally at a thin client.

    Wyse_TCX_USB_Virtualizer provides support for certain USB devices and no CD Burning capabilities from locally attached USB CD Burner on the terminal as of yet.

    Wyse TCX Virtualizerâ„¢ 1.0 redirects the USB drivers from the server infrastructure to the Wyse thin clients and functions as the virtual USB driver traversing over the network. Wyse TCX Virtualizerâ„¢ is a software enhancement layer which has both the server and client components that work intelligently to redirect USB device driver for
    virtualized desktop environment.

    ❗ Also note: this only works with XPe and WTOS v6.1 clients with the server running Microsoft XP Professional with SP2 on VMWare’s ESX Server 3.0.1.

    Retrieve the datasheet here for more information:

    I have tested TCX USB already and it is possible to burn a CD in that scenario.
    CD burner attached to V10L, connected via RDP to Windows XP Pro with Nero installed. Works fine.

    Thanks CG,

    Since I did not have the hardware to test this out on I opened a service ticket with WYSE. I’m glad that you were able to test and disprove what I was led to believe.

    I am going to get a V10L to evaluate with this setup in order to offer this solution to our client who has been asking for this capability.

    Cheers 🙂
