You can use recommended solutions to USB redirection for some types of USB devices.
Instead of using USB redirection, use these redirection features that provide better performance and user experience:
- For scanners, use scanner redirection. See Configuring Scanner Redirection.
- For printers, use printer redirection. See Configuring VMware Integrated Printing.
- For smartcard readers, use smartcard redirection. See the Horizon 7 Administration document.
- For serial port devices, use serial port redirection. See Configuring Serial Port Redirection.
- Use client drive redirection for file sharing instead of USB redirection for USB disks and massive storage devices. See Managing Access to Client Drive Redirection.
