USB Device Redirection in VMware Horizon with View
Oct 1, 2014
We are all familiar with using USB devices on laptop or desktop machines.
If you are working in a virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environment such as View, you may want to use your USB devices in the virtual desktop, too. USB device redirection is a function in View that allows USB devices to be connected to the virtual desktop as if they had been physically plugged into it.
This white paper gives a high-level overview of USB remoting, discusses the configuration options, and provides some practical worked examples to illustrate how these options can be used.
