Skype over RDSH - Thinclients and Webcams

Jump to solution

Hi,

On of our customers is trying to use Skype over a RDSH (Win server 2012 R2) on a vWorkspace 8.6.3 enviroment.

He is using Thinclient Wyse 3030LT and webcam Logitech C525 which is listed as officialy supported by that ThinClient.

When connecting the webcam to the TC you can see the video on the preview mode from admin session on the Thinclient, however when a user logs into his RDSH session the Windows is not able to detect the webcam and thus it doesn't shows the video on Skype.

So I have tried to fix that by adding the following code to WNOS.ini file (which corresponds to the webcam device):

Device=VUSB ForceRedirect=0x046d,0x0826,0xef,0x02,0x01

However it doesn't fixed the problem... I tried also to install wyse TCX suite server on the RDSH server and I configured a new device (webcam) with the previous data to allow its redirection. With no luck...

Please can anybody help me with this?

thanks

PS. here you are the TCX suite device added...

Hi,

I've finnaly fix it.

The TC has some default active options regarding USB redirection exclusions.

To avoid them you can do it into this way: 

Login into the TC as admin, I localized the "Connect Manager" --> Global Connection Settings and then I uncheck:

- Exclude audio devices

- Exclude video devices

Also, on Global connection settings RDP tab --> USB Device Redirection Type = TCX USB (instead of RDP USB)

In my case the previous fix only Works if you have installed TCX suite server on the RDSH server.

Also you can include the above on your WNOS.ini by adding this:

SessionConfig=ALL UnmapPrinters=no Smartcards=yes UnmapSerials=no MapDisks=yes VUSB_DISKS=no VUSB_VIDEO=Yes VUSB_AUDIO=Yes VUSB_PRINTER=yes DisableSound=No EnableImprivataVC=no Language=0x040A Fullscreen=yes
SessionConfig=RDP EnableNLA=no EnableGFX=yes EnableRdpH264=yes EnableRecord=yes USBRedirection=TCX AutoDetectNetwork=no TSGWEnable=no

Device=VUSB ForceRedirect=0x046d,0x0826,0xef,0x02,0x01

Hi,

Is the thinclient Windows or ThinOS..? If Windows, then use local GPO and configure RemoteFX GPO and you will be able to carry any devices connected locally to the ThinClient to your RDSH /Windows VDI session.

I'm using this trick and I'm able to integrate our Skype for business / Lync and able to have  great DSCP tagging too for Voice and video.

Regards,

Hussain
