When creating filtering rules, you can use the USB redirection properties.

Table 1. Configuration Properties for USB Redirection

Policy Name and Property

Description

Allow Auto Device Splitting

Property:

AllowAutoDeviceSplitting

Allow the automatic splitting of composite USB devices.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Exclude Vid/Pid Device From Split

Property:

SplitExcludeVidPid

Excludes a composite USB device specified by vendor and product IDs from splitting. The format of the setting is vid-xxx1_pid-yyy1[;vid-xxx2_pid-yyy2]...

You must specify ID numbers in hexadecimal. You can use the wildcard character (*) in place of individual digits in an ID.

For example: vid-0781_pid-55**

The default value is undefined.

Split Vid/Pid Device

Property:

SplitVidPid

Treats the components of a composite USB device specified by vendor and product IDs as separate devices. The format of the setting is

vid-xxxx_pid-yyyy([exintf:zz[;exintf:ww ]])[;...]

You can use the exintf keyword to exclude components from redirection by specifying their interface number. You must specify ID numbers in hexadecimal, and interface numbers in decimal including any leading zero. You can use the wildcard character (*) in place of individual digits in an ID.

For example: vid-0781_pid-554c(exintf:01;exintf:02)

Note:

If the composite device includes components that are automatically excluded, such as mouse and keyboard components, then View does not automatically include the components that you have not explicitly excluded. You must specify a filter policy such as Include Vid/Pid Device to include those components.

The default value is undefined.

Allow Audio Input Devices

Property:

AllowAudioIn

Allows audio input devices to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to true.

Allow Audio Output Devices

Property:

AllowAudioOut

Allows audio output devices to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Allow HID

Property:

AllowHID

Allows input devices other than keyboards or mice to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to true.

Allow HIDBootable

Property:

AllowHIDBootable

Allows input devices other than keyboards or mice that are available at boot time (also known as hid-bootable devices) to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to true.

Allow Device Descriptor Failsafe

Property:

AllowDevDescFailsafe

Allows devices to be redirected even if the Horizon Client fails to get the config/device descriptors.

To allow a device even if it fails the config/desc, include it in the Include filters, such IncludeVidPid or IncludePath.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Allow Keyboard and Mouse Devices

Property:

AllowKeyboardMouse

Allows keyboards with integrated pointing devices (such as a mouse, trackball, or touch pad) to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Allow Smart Cards

Property:

AllowSmartcard

Allows smart-card devices to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Allow Video Devices

Property:

AllowVideo

Allows video devices to be redirected.

The default value is undefined, which equates to true.

Disable Remote Configuration Download

Property:

DisableRemoteConfig

Disables the use of View Agent or Horizon Agent settings when performing USB device filtering.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Exclude All Devices

Property:

ExcludeAllDevices

Excludes all USB devices from being redirected. If set to true, you can use other policy settings to allow specific devices or families of devices to be redirected. If set to false, you can use other policy settings to prevent specific devices or families of devices from being redirected.

If you set the value of Exclude All Devices to true on View Agent or Horizon Agent, and this setting is passed to Horizon Client, the View Agent or Horizon Agent setting overrides the Horizon Client setting.

The default value is undefined, which equates to false.

Exclude Device Family

Property:

ExcludeFamily

Excludes families of devices from being redirected. The format of the setting is family_name_1[;family_name_2]...

For example: bluetooth;smart-card

The default value is undefined.

Note:

If you have enabled automatic device splitting, View examines the device family of each interface of a composite USB device to decide which interfaces should be excluded. If you have disabled automatic device splitting, View examines the device family of the whole composite USB device.

Exclude Vid/Pid Device

Property:

ExcludeVidPid

Excludes devices with specified vendor and product IDs from being redirected. The format of the setting is vid-xxx1_pid-yyy2[;vid-xxx2_pid-yyy2]...

You must specify ID numbers in hexadecimal. You can use the wildcard character (*) in place of individual digits in an ID.

For example: vid-0781_pid-****;vid-0561_pid-554c

The default value is undefined.

Exclude Path

Property:

ExcludePath

Exclude devices at specified hub or port paths from being redirected. The format of the setting is bus-x1[/y1]..._port-z1[;bus-x2[/y2]..._port-z2]...

You must specify bus and port numbers in hexadecimal. You cannot use the wildcard character in paths.

For example: bus-1/2/3_port-02;bus-1/1/1/4_port-ff

The default value is undefined.

Include Device Family

Property:

IncludeFamily

Includes families of devices that can be redirected. The format of the setting is family_name_1[;family_name_2]...

For example: storage

The default value is undefined.

Include Path

Property:

IncludePath

Include devices at a specified hub or port paths that can be redirected. The format of the setting is bus-x1[/y1]..._port-z1[;bus-x2[/y2]..._port-z2]...

You must specify bus and port numbers in hexadecimal. You cannot use the wildcard character in paths.

For example: bus-1/2_port-02;bus-1/7/1/4_port-0f

The default value is undefined.

Include Vid/Pid Device

Property:

IncludeVidPid

Includes devices with specified vendor and product IDs that can be redirected. The format of the setting is vid-xxx1_pid-yyy2[;vid-xxx2_pid-yyy2]...

You must specify ID numbers in hexadecimal. You can use the wildcard character (*) in place of individual digits in an ID.

For example: vid-0561_pid-554c

The default value is undefined.
