We have a need to scan documents into our LOB application running on a Windows 2003 Terminal Server. The workstations are in remote offices communicating via site-to-site VPN. The workstations are connecting to the terminal server using RDP. Is there a way to have RDP recognize a locally attached USB device such as a scanner?
To use a scanner with Terminal Services you will need to use third party software such as RemoteScan or triCerat's Simplify Printing.
