Full access to local USB devices in a remote desktop session

Forward USB devices connected to thin/zero clients over the network

USB pass-through technology for thin/zero clients

Redirection of USB devices to terminal servers often becomes a real challenge for the users of thin clients.

The problem is that not all types of USB peripherals can be supported and forwarded by native methods of remote desktop protocols. More than that, USB passthrough to a terminal server often requires additional settings and complex configuration on both ends.
To resolve this challenge, Eltima Software has developed a unique USB Pass-through Technology that is aimed at complete emulation of all USB device endpoints and redirection of the virtualized copies of the USB device across the network.

By integrating this dedicated third-party solution directly into your thin client software, you can provide your customers with the much-desired ability to get secure remote access to USB devices of any type.

Key benefits of implementing USB Pass-through Technology in thin-client software:


Full USB Pass-through Support

The technology provides USB passthrough not limited by the device class. That means users of remote machines will be able to access the full functionality of a USB device as though it were connected to their thin clients locally.

UX Optimization

USB Pass-through Technology supports USB devices of any type, including 3d mice, biometric devices, flash drives, memory card readers, smart card readers, PTP сameras, MTP media players, and other devices, which aren’t usually accessible in RDP sessions.

Competitive edge

The technology is extremely easy to deploy and use. A simple installation of the solution on the thin client and terminal server will be enough for establishing a secure USB redirection channel. Your customers will be able to redirect USB peripherals over the network with just a few clicks without any additional connection configuration.

Multiple platform deployment

Eltima specialists provide high-level technical assistance during the technology customization and integration. Plus, the solution comes with regular updates and improvements.
