HP RGS - Remote USB Centos 6.x

HP Recommended
HP RGS
Linux

HI,

I have a few systems (Z840, Z8, Z600) that are running with CentOS 6.4-6.9.

 

HP RGS seems to work and I can also have audio on the client side(MacOS)... but was wondering if it was possible to plug USB devices on the client side and make them visible on CENTOS6 ? or not ?

 

Running RGS 7.7 here.

 

 

Thanks!

Hi Dropbrick,

 

At the moment, Remote USB functions are available for Windows and ThinPro only.

I attached the RGS 7.7 User's Guide if you'd like more information on Remote features.

Thanks. Any plans for supporting Linux as a sender in the future ?

Linux is already supported as a sender, and for the latest Remote Boost release there's also support for RHEL 8 and Ubuntu.

As for remote USB features, they are just not there yet on Linux due to technical limitations.

 

If you'd like to give the new RGS a try, Remote Boost 20.0 was just released:

Hi Lizzy,

Thanks for the reply.

 

 

So my server can run Centos 6 but my client has to be Windows (not Mac or Linux) to be able to forward local USB devices to the server ?

 

 

 

Thanks!

Hi Lizzy,

Do you know if what I've asked on the post above is possible ?

 

 

Thanks,

Hi Dropbrick,

 

Re-reading the comments above I realized you were asking if you could remote USB to a Linux sender.

Although Linux is supported as a sender with most features available, remote USB functions to a Linux sender are not possible at the moment.
