Hello Support, I get "You do not have the required permissions to read topics within this forum" when looking in the USB redirection section, is that expected?

First of all, I'm pretty impressed by the performance of WTware on a raspberry pi. I was doing some tests with it and everything worked fine, except for linking a camera to the device. USB flash however, worked fine. The camera worked fine on a Windows PC as well.

I want to link a camera (Canon IXUS 160) to the Raspberry and see the camera show up as a remote usb drive. Should this be working? Is this a configuration setting I'm missing?

Only if this camera has "mass storage" mode. Most of them work over MTP/PTP. WTware does not do MTP/PTP redirection just now.

I found out that Ubuntu uses gphoto2 for camera support.
Would it be a solution to include the library of gphoto2 in WTware?

You want to see camera on Windows, so we should use things that Microsoft knows. There is no "library of gphoto2 redirection" in RDP.

Can you connect your camera to windows machine, run mstsc.exe and see your camera inside RDP session?

When using mstsc.exe I can see my camera indeed.
