Not that I am aware, at least through Group Policy. Maybe others have ideas?

Subject: [gptalk] Digitalcameras Terminalserver



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 example).


best regards
