SfB on RDS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey

    Would you recommend:

    LyncVDI -> RDS or RemoteFX USB Cam -> RDS?


    When running RemoteFX USB Cam on a RDS Session host - under setting - the camera is working perfect. When I start a video call - it says no video or in use. Anyone know why?

  • Are you using the Lync VDI plugin on the local machine? If so, as I understand RemoteFX it redirects all USB connections - however for Lync VDI plugin functionality you should not be redirecting any audio or video USB devices.

    Please also note that Lync / Skype for Business is only supported in a true Remote Desktop Services VDI environment, and not in a Remote Desktop Sesssion environment.

    Kind regards
