Port Forwarding to remote app

Tushar Jain
Hi,

My remote app needs access to local USB port. A smart card reader is connected on the local USB port, and it needs to be accessed by remote app through guacamole connection. Any ideas on how this can be accomplished? Is there something like "Port Forwarding" available?

Thanks,
Tushar Jain

Not today, no.  We have thrown out the idea of using the WebUSB support introduced in Chrome a couple of years ago to support that, but it hasn't been implemented, yet:


However, I would caution that, even if WebUSB support were implemented, the number of items that are supported via the WebUSB interface are pretty limited, so this may not solve your use-case.
