Fabulatech USB Redirection

Menu Path: Setup > Sessions > Horizon Client > Horizon Client Global > Fabulatch USB Redirection

For Fabulatech USB Redirection, a special Fabulatech server component must be installed on the Citrix server (USB for Remote Desktop Igel Edition).

More detailed information about the function can be found on the Fabulatech partner site: http://www.usb-over-network.com/partners/igel/.


Enable either native or Fabulatech USB redirection – not both together. Disable USB redirection if you use DriveLock.
Ensure that no other hotplug storage device (USB stick) is connected if a session is started with Fabulatech USB redirection. Otherwise the hotplug storage device will not be securely removed when the session starts, and this could lead to data loss. With IGEL Linux Version 10.02.x the hotplug storage device is already insecurely removed when the Fabulatech USB redirection is enabled.
