Flexlm with USB dongle fails if rdp is used

Description

Hello there,

I would like to run Virtualbox on a linux server system with Windows XP as guest. The windows machine should work as a licence manager based on flexlm and a SafeNet USB dongle.

My setup is as follows:

Server OpenSUSE 10.2 Guest: Windows XP Virtualbox: 1.5.6 Network attached to host interface Guest Additions Installed

All works fine up to one feature: if I try to contact the Windows guest via rdp either from Windows remotedesktop or rdesktop on linux the vendor daemon for flexlm says the dongle can't be read any more. Despite of this the hardware manager on windows says the dongle is there and he is working. Closing the rdp connection and restarting flexlm then works fine again. So what does the rdp connection do with the USB? Thanks for any hint. Klaus

A RDP connection to the VirtualBox RDP server should not affect the guest (in theory). Please post here the VBox.log with the problem.

Do you use the linux host IP address or the Windows guest IP address in the RDP client?

Sorry for my late answer. In the meantime I forgot my password and so I am answering under a new account name, but the problem itself still exists:

I tried it out with the new Virtualbox 1.6.0 under my new Linux server with OpenSUSE 10.3 and a new installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 guest. Because obviously there are some problems with the network attached to host interface along with the PCnet adapter I am using the Intel PRO Adapter which seems to be ok. The rest is like before:

So what does the rdp connection do with the USB?

In my RDP client I am using the address from the Windows guest. The vbox.log file is attached. The rdp connection is corresponding with the lines

00:04:22.673 VBVA: Disabled. 00:04:22.677 VBVA: Enabled.
