access thin client attached storage usb kes/sdcards using ssh

Post by fapedp » Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:17 pm

hi to all,
we are evaluating wtware in our firm, we are using raspberry pi3 as thin client and we are impressed about wtware.
the only thing that lacks is a way to connect using ssh (sftp) from the terminal server to the thin client. The goal is to gain read/write access to storage usb keys or sdcards attached to the thin client; that of course should be auto-mounted by the thin client. does someone as some tip for this? thank to all in advice

many thanks for the reply.
we have tried these solutions but we have problems with windows10 hosts; and also we do not found any indication on microsoft KB about wich ports should be open on the network, because opening only the 3389 isn't sufficent to transport usb storage keys.
so nobody has tips to realize something like:
- install openssh on pi
- create on pi a user wich have read/write permission on a specified local folder (for example /mnt/user)
- set pi to automount all usb storage devices in /mnt/user

doing so should be sufficient; then on the terminal server just install for example winscp to grant access via ssh to the usb devices attached on the thin client.
