Today we’ll discuss 3Dconnexion remote desktop access for users who’d like to know how to redirect a 3D mouse in remote desktop. The following article demonstrates just how simple it can be to use a 3D mouse over RDP.
Enjoy this detailed guide to learn how to redirect USB 3D CAD mice to RDP sessions with our USB to Remote Desktop software solution.
If a 3D mouse utilizes a USB interface, the user will need the option to redirect transmitted data to a specified RDP (remote desktop session). Many users wonder: “How do I get my 3D mouse to work through remote desktop?”, and that’s a reasonable question, considering that using a 3D mouse over remote desktop is difficult.
One remote desktop 3D mouse option is RemoteFX USB redirection. RemoteFX USB redirection permits the users to gain access to a USB-connected 3D mouse over remote desktop.
RemoteFX USB redirection lets someone use 3D mouse over RDP, though issues regarding inconsistent device reliability and performance do exist.
Details regarding the 3D Application Mouse Movement RDP Issue: The 3D mouse behaves as it should up until it redirects to the 3D environment. Whilst in the 3D environment, users no longer have control over the 3D mouse’s movements due to driver issues.
Follow the steps below to learn how to use 3D mouse with remote Desktop via USB Network Gate:
NOTE: In order for the 3D mouse to work correctly, you need to install the official drivers.
That’s it! The 3D mouse is now available in your RDP session and ready for use.
The use of SpaceMouse devices temporarily has been increasing in remote environments. At present, 3dconnexion offers no remote solutions for their systems and devices.
So, if the remote solution you use doesn't natively support USB devices, you can take help from the following information.
If you are a Microsoft RDP user, enable RemoteFX. You can refer to the below description for more details.
Note: The information provided here will just help expand SpiceMouse, so, please do not expect that you can use all its features.
In addition, you must note that you won't be able to use a wireless device unless you connect it to a cable. Also, you can't transfer CadMouse to a remote machine but it's possible to use CadMouse in the form of a standard 2-dimensional mouse with no driver.
RemoteFX System Requirements: For running RemoteFX on your system, you need to have at least Windows Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7 Pro Sp1 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
Next, open the command prompt. Make sure you have administrative rights. Enter gpupdate /force. In the end, restart your device.
Once you have restarted the machine, open the installed RDP client on it. For this, you can click on "Start" and look for RDP. After you open the RDP client, locate the “Local Resources” tab and click on the "More" option.
Moreover, find and open the option - “Other supported RemoteFX USB devices”. Once opened, it will show you the connected 3D mouse. Next, you must activate the 3D mouse by checking the box appearing.
So, the next time you connect through the RDP, the device gets forwarded to the targeted system.
