In a Tuesday post at the VMWare End-User Computing Blog, Senior Product Manager Kristina De Nike announced which VMware View Client for Mac 1.7 today could connect with a neighborhood USB peripheral, including storage plus printers.
Users may copy files from a camera to the View Desktop, or print a file to a connected printer, she wrote. There are limitations: Users will just connect with any device at a amount of time in either the customer Mac machine or the remote desktop.
To utilize this feature, a View administrator need USB enabled for the View desktop. It is equally potential to configure the customer program to specify that USB equipment is redirected to a View desktop or to exclude equipment.
Most USB equipment is noticeable inside the menu, with all the exception of equipment including keyboards plus pointing equipment, that the area computer as well as the View desktop absolutely share. Note: webcams plus sound device functionality depends found on the state of the network plus are not reliable inside the View desktop.
