In this area, you can enable virtual RDP channels for communicating with various devices connected to the thin client.

The devices supported are listed in the IGEL Third Party Hardware Database.

  • Enable plugin support

    ☑ Communication between connected devices and the relevant server applications is enabled. The individual channels must also be enabled.

    ☐ Communication between connected devices and server applications is not enabled. (Default)

    When using DriveLock, ensure that the use of USB devices is not universally restricted; see Devices > USB Access Control.
  • DriveLock channel: The virtual DriveLock channel is implemented on the thin client. The channel must also be installed on the RDP server.
    DriveLock can read hardware data from local USB devices and transfer these data to the server with the help of the virtual RDP channel extension. From IGEL Linux Version 10.03.500 this is also possible with SATA devices. When using whitelists, rules based on the hardware properties of the connected drive (e.g. manufacturer details, model and serial number) are taken into account.

    Important information regarding DriveLock can be found in the Using DriveLock with IGEL Devices FAQ.
