    Hi,

    I am having problems getting USB redirection to work on a virtual machine. We are using A Wyse S10 (Thin OS 6.5.0.22) to connect to to the VM via VMWare View 4.5. The VM is running Windows XP SP3.

    Devices plugged into the S10 are detected and show in the event log as being connected to whatever port. The device in question is a smartcard reader which should register in XP as an HID device. USB sticks do show in XP although they show as ‘Other’ rather than removable storage.

    I have downloaded the free trial of Wyse’s USB TCX and installed this on the VM but this has got me no further.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Thanks

    This will not work in this way.
    VMware View agent has its own USB redirection inplemented. This is not compatible with TCX or WTOS.
    So, remove the agent and reinstall it without the View USB redirection. Now install TCX USB and it will work.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have tried this. At the moment I have the view agent installed without the USB redirection.

    In the TCX control panel I have added the device specifically even though it should be covered by the HID class entry.

    At the moment I am waiting to hear back from WYSE about getting the OS upgraded to V7, I’m on 6.5 at the moment. Not sure if this will make any difference though.

    This does not make a difference.
    Have you added SessionConfig=All Smartcards=yes?
    This should fix it directly.

    Hi,

    The smartcard reader is normally shown in device manager as an HID device rather than a smartcard device. However, just in case I tried your suggestion but unfortunately it still cannot be seen in the VM.

    When you plug in the SC reader in the S10, does it show something like “VUSB: Local Device (0x1234, 0x1234,0x00,0x00,0x00)?
    If yes, add
    Device=vusb ForceRedirect=0x1234,0x1234,0x00,0x00,0x00 Type=TCX
    to your wnos.ini.
    If it does not show this, then plug in the SC reader in your PC and check the values for VendorID, ProductID, USB Class, Subclass and Protocol either in Device Manager or use “USB Device View” tool (google it- it’s free).

    Hi,

    Thanks, I just tried this.

    Firstly it does not like the TYPE parameter. I am on ThinOS 6.5 so I think that may be why.

    I tried it without this and still does not work. In the event log it just states USB: new device “HID” found on port 4 whenever the device is plugged in.

    Thanks.

    But you use your USB device values, haven’t you?

    Hi,

    Yes, I added the device id as follows:

    Device=vusb ForceRedirect=0x1394,0x0501,0x03,0x00,0x00

    As you can see I left out the type parameter since it raised an error.

    With this option set the device is still not visible in teh VM.

    Thanks.

    What happens when you plug in any other USB device like USB Memory Stick? Does this appear in the session as a local(!!!) drive?

    I have tried a USB memory stick and it appears under ‘Other’ rather than as a local disk.

    Then TCX is not running at all.

    Hi,

    Finally I have got this working. It turned out that “use secure tunneling” was turned on on our VDI server. I switched this off and all of a sudden USB devices are working. The card reader works and the USB stick maps as a local drive.

    Thanks for all your suggestions (and patience).

    Change
    SessionConfig=ALL mapdisks={yes} VUSB_DISKS=yes DisksReadOnly={yes}

    to
    SessionConfig=ALL mapdisks=yes UnmapUSB=yes DisksReadOnly=yes
