Ticket #8288 (closed defect: invalid)
Guests on RHEL/ScientificLinux 6 host, both 3.2.12 and 4.0.2 can see but cannot access usb printers.

Running either VBox 3.2.12 or 4.0.2 w/ expansion pack on 64-bit RHEL/Scientific Linux 6, no guests can access any usb printer. A USB scanner can be activated and accessed without problems. I suspect this is because the host is using that printer as a system printer, though configured the same (AFAIK) with RHEL/CentOS 5 the problem doesn't exist. FWIW, I have two USB connections to the printer, and only one of them should be utilized by the host OS. VBox recognizes both connections, but won't let me access either of them. Any suggestions how to get access to at least one of the connections would be helpful.
