This chapter provides guidelines for setting up USB redirection on the Cisco VXC 6215 devices.
Recognizing USB cameras using HDX RealTime Webcam with Citrix
To allow applications to use USB cameras within the XenDesktop session, the Cisco VXC 6215 supports the use of HDX RealTime Webcam video compression. HDX RealTime Webcam is supported with the Cisco VXC 6215 base firmware and with the Cisco VXME add-on.
With HDX RealTime Webcam, the Cisco VXC 6215 captures the video data, compresses it, and then sends the video data to the XenDesktop session.
By default, the Cisco VXC 6215 is configured to support HDX RealTime Webcam. To use HDX Realtime Webcam with XenDesktop 5.0 and above, you must configure the XenDesktop policies to enable HDX RealTime. (See XenDesktop documentation for details.)
On the base firmware without the VXME, you can alternatively enable HDX Plug-and-Play for connectivity of USB devices, but it does not support webcams.
HDX Plug-n-Play for cameras is not supported on the Cisco VXC 6215 with the Cisco VXME add-on (Citrix recommends using HDX Webcam for camera interactions).
USB camera redirection not supported with Vmware View
USB camera redirection is not supported with VMware View.
USB redirection not supported for Logitech UC Keyboard with Cisco VXME
In all cases where it is available, Cisco strongly recommends that you enable Citrix HDX rather than use USB redirection. If you do enable USB redirection when running Cisco VXME, you must deny the Logitech UC Keyboard K725-C from USB redirection, otherwise the keyboard may not function properly.
To deny the Logitech UC Keyboard K725-C from USB redirection, include the following line in the INI file:
ICADenyUSB=vid=046d pid=b320, vid=046d pid=b321
