USB redirection

In this area, you can enable and configure USB redirection for specific devices. From IGEL Linux 5.12.100, a USB composite device can be split into its components (interfaces). Example: USB dictation device that is split into the components loudspeaker, microphone, storage device/drive and control buttons.

Ensure that the power supplied by the USB connection is adequate for the device.

If USB redirection is enabled, drive mapping should be disabled; see Drive mapping. Otherwise, USB redirection can cause a storage device to be removed from the drive mapping. This is the case if the Connect automatically upon insertion option is enabled.

You can change the following settings:

Enabling USB redirection:

  1. Enable the option Enable USB Redirection.
  2. Select a Default rule. The default rule defines if the USB redirection is allowed or prohibited in principle.
  3. Create one or more rules for classes of devices or single devices.

Creating a class rule:

  1. To create a new rule, click Hinzufügen in the Class Rules area.
  2. Choose a rule. The rule specifies whether use of the device class defined here is allowed or prohibited.
  3. Under Class, select the class of device for which the rule should apply. Examples: Audio, Printer, Mass Storage, Storage Devices.
  4. Under Name, give a name for the rule.
  5. Click on Next.
  6. Click on Apply or OK.

    The rule is active.

To create a device rule, proceed as follows:

When a rule is defined, at least one of the properties Vendor ID or Product ID must be given.

  1. To create a new rule, click Hinzufügen in the Device Rules area.
  2. Choose a rule. The following rules are available:
  3. Give the Vendor ID of the device as a hexadecimal value.
  4. Give the Product ID of the device as a hexadecimal value.
  5. Only for USB composite devices: Under Interface Exclue List, enter a list of interfaces which are to be excluded from USB redirection. The individual interfaces can be separated by commas or spaces.
  6. Under Name, give a name for the rule.
  7. Click on Next.
  8. Click on Apply or OK.

    The rule is active.
