USB Device Redirection

With device redirection, you can redirect a USB device on your local computer to the remote computer. The redirected device works on the remote computer as if it's plugged in directly at that computer. 

Feature optimization 

  • The feature is now available to Mac users. If you'd like to give it a try, make sure you update both your business app and streamer to v.
  • We recommend installing the updated driver in v. to take advantage of the optimization.
    If you're new to the service or have installed the driver before: uninstall the current version first, then install the new version by clicking "Install Redirection Service".

Additional Notes

  • Device redirection for Printers will be disabled when Remote Print is disabled in Team Settings.
  • Device redirection is only available through unattended sessions - not SOS/attended.
    • However, if there is already a device redirected to the remote computer, a technician may have access to the device through an SOS session on the same computer.


  • Unable to get device redirection to work or have suggestions for us? Please open a support ticket.
  • From v3.5.6.0 onward, we conducted tests on several webcams and identified a potential for redirection. Our findings indicate a higher success rate when the webcam is equipped with Logitech Webcam Drivers. It is necessary to manually add the VID/ PID to the whitelist, the webcam won't be automatically detected and shown on the list. Please open a support ticket, our support agent will explain how to proceed. 
    *Only available to Windows (local) to Windows (remote) connection



There might be a possibility to cause BSoD (Blue Screen of Death) on Streamer computer when redirecting devices and running USB tools (ex. USBDeview.exe) which may query device or host information on Streamer computer simultaneously.
