Remote Desktop + Device Redirect

    Remote Desktop


    Howdy guys,

    I've got win8 Pro running on my laptop and desktop running remote desktop. This works perfectly BUT I cannot find the 'Device Redirect' option once the session has begun. I've read its possible here.

    I have enabled remotefx in group policies on both machines. The option under local resrouces 'more' button for remote fx is there, and I can select my device (scanner) but when I connect only the printer shows up in devices.

    Any ideas?
