How do I use TSX USB?

Thinstuff Support

Client side (where the device is attached)

You can download the client part of TSX USB in  XP/VS Server's installation package from here:

 To redirect drives , headsetsprinters, scanners or webcams you may not need TSX USB explicitly as modern RDP clients support these devices out of the box.

On client side start the installation package - and at a certain step you can decide to install XPVS Server or TSX USB (Workstation Installation: Install the TSX USB Remote Desktop Client Addon)

Note !!! TSX USB does not support USB 3.0 (hardware)
--> Can be found in command "msinfo32"

It is important which hardware is built in --- not the ('software) downgraded USB interface !

Server side (where XP/VS Server is installed and the users connect to)

1.) Run the XP/VS Server Adminstrator, click on "Options" and then on "TSX USB Server Administrator".

2.) The TSX USB Server Administrator window will open.

3.) Click on "Options" and then on "TSX USB Configuration".

4.) Enable the "Enable USB Device Redirection" field and choose one of the two options.



Before you connect to the Server per RDP please do the following :

1.) Run the "TSX USB Client" on the client machine.

2.) Click with the right-mouse-button on the device you want to share .

3.) Click on "Share USB Device".

The Device is now released. When you connect to your server via RDP your shared device will appear in the TSX Server Administrator.
Keep in mind that everybody can access the device because for the server it's a locally connected device.
