USB scanner fails to scan when invoked through VRDP

Reported by: ipna Owned by:
Priority: major Component: RDP
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.4 Keywords: USB VRDP Scanner VBoxHeadless
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux



  • HP Scanjet G4050 (USB scanner)
  • Windows XP Pro (guest)
  • Linux Mint/Ubuntu (host)

The scanner works fine when I install both guest and host in the same machine and the scanner is attached to a local USB port. But when I keep the scanner attached to the same machine and install both guest and host in a remote machine (VBoxHeadless), and try to forward the USB connection via rdesktop-vrdp, the scanning process renders a corrupted image (the scanner lamp moves slowly and hard).
