USB Device Redirection to Azure VM with RemoteFX

Category: azure vm

Question

How can I configure my VM to accept USB devices redirected via RemoteFX?  I've verified group policy settings on the VM OS, but it seems the VM Manager may not be permitting the device to be redirected to my VM.  My local client is specified to redirect the device using RemoteFX.

Thank you,

Lincoln

Hi,

Thanks for your posting.

Actually ,all the instances on Window Azure are virtual machines and all the instances are deployed on the Hyper-V, thus the Hyper-V and Remote FX services can not be installed on Window Azure instance.

There is a similar thread:
