USB redirection of custom devices identified by VID and PID
Some USB devices
appear on the USB bus as so called Vendor Specific Class devices (with 255 or
0xFF USB device or interface class code). Neither the RX-series firmware nor
LEAF OS can properly categorize such devices as printers, smart card readers,
audio, etc. To enable the Generic USB redirection for such devices the Vendor
ID (VID) and Product ID (PID) numbers identifying the USB device need to be
added to the Custom VID:PID list.
To add a USB device to the Custom VID:PID list click the [ + ]
button located under the list and then specify the VID and PID values (as
not prefixed hexadecimal numbers) or select the device from list of currently
connected USB devices and press the [Add] button:
Note: Only generic USB redirection will be used for
custom VID:PID devices. Generic USB redirection and Native redirection of
peripheral devices are mutually exclusive! If the Native redirection
method is selected for some USB device then its VID and PID values must not be
added to the Custom VID:PID list. Adding a USB device to Custom
VID:PID list will most likely prevent the Native redirection!
Note: Additional requirements and limitations apply when using the Generic USB redirection
with RDP protocol.
Removing USB devices from Custom VID:PID list
To remove a USB device
from the list of custom devices configured for Generic USB redirection select
the device on the list and click the [ - ] button.
