We're in the need to use Digital Cameras (and maybe USB Scanner) on our
Terminalservers. For security reasons we've disabled all the
Client/Server mappings for the RDP Connection. As we're just in a
ThinClient project we cannot use the Camera local any longer (as the
Thinclients are Windows CE).


Is there any convenient way to use such Devices as Cameras without
allowing the user to map their local Devices into the RDP Session?


Another annoyance: If no Driver for the Camera is installed, Windows
will recognize it as an Removable Diskdrive. No problem so far. But if
an driver is installed the Camera is no longer an removable Device but
an Camera (per WIA) instead. How to use such devices (Scanner is another


best regards
