Remote Desktop Access - fail to connect to remote usb card reader.

Posted: 04-08-2005, 08:37 AM
I connected successfully to remote PC located at the same network using my
laptop. It seemed to have given me full control on the remote PC untill I
tried to access the USB smart card reader connected to remote PC. It failed
to detect the USB card reader at remote PC.

Can any body kindly let me know how to make a succeffully connection to USB
card reader at remote Pc? Do I need to do any setting further?

Note:
The usb card reader was working perfectly if I accessed it directly at the
remote PC. I tried to use PCAnywhere to access the USB card reader at remote
PC and it worked fine.

AFAIK, USB devices other than printers are not supported by Remote Desktop...
