Microsoft Remote Desktop doesn’t support using a local scanner with remote desktop by default. While utilizing peripheral devices like external drives and printers is quite easy, using a scanner over the remote desktop can only be done with 3rd-party software.
USB Network Gate is a powerful application that gives users access to their scanning equipment during RDP sessions. Thus allowing someone to use local scanner remote desktop functionality!
Thanks to USB Network Gate, someone can use a USB scanner over RDP capabilities to safely scan documents via a remote desktop session with a quick and simple setup process.
For users wondering how to use scanners through remote desktops, this section is for you. When remote desktop scanner redirection isn’t supported, USB Network Gate allows users access to their local USB scanners as effectively as if they were plugged physically into the remote machine.
✅ Advanced security measures
Utilizing advanced security encryption protocols, USB Network Gate protects transmitted data from being accessed by unauthorized users.
Users can even require the input of an additional password to connect to the scanner from a remote desktop (client computer).
✅ Easily redirect scanners to different platforms
USB Network Gate works on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS, allowing effortless cross-platform device sharing opportunities.
Any OS platform can be set up as a “server computer” or “client computer”, regardless of whether they utilize the same operating system or not.
✅ No scanner drivers required
USB Network Gate never requires scanner drivers on client computers, thus saving tons of system admin work because new drivers never need to be installed when a USB scanner is accessed by a remote desktop session.
