By default Windows Terminal Server does not support USB devices.
Citrix Metaframe Presentation Server 40 supports USB / Twain redirection.

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

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).
