    Wyse c50LE terminals, Windows 2008 R2 terminal servers running Xenapp 6.0
    When we run the latest TCX (eval) we can mount flash disks from the c50 units but all users on the terminal server see the disk and can write to it!

    I am quite sure this has to be some oversight on our side but I see nothing in the documentation to suggest we can set security on XenApp/TS. This makes sense for VDI but not at all (obviously) on XenApp/TS.

    I posted this on WYSE forum but freewysemonkeys has been a great resource so I thought perhaps someone can tell me how to secure them, or if this is really not possible, how to get USB disks to mount via the C50 without TCX.

    This is by design. There is no session security on TS or XA environments. Connecting one USB device via TXC to a XA/TS server, will show up to everyone connected to that server.
    Only using virtual desktops like XenDesktop will solve this for you.

    Thanks, this makes sense of course but I wonder then if I am simply missing how the Citrix client for Linux is configured. I should be able to map a local drive it seems to me from the c50 on TS/XA.

    I am quite clear that VDI would solve this and is certainly the direction we are heading in general. Just want to make sure there is zero way a c50 can see a local flash disk drive securely. Seems like the old client mapping method should be pretty easy to implement.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Mapping of a memory stick should be working fine with the C50LE fine even without TCX.
    What gave you tried? Keep in mind that NTFS is not supported as a client filesystem.
