Ok, here is my up date after messing around with this well into the night.FWIW, the serial device is a 3M touchscreen with a serial interface. I am working with The 3M MicroTouch Drivers (MTD from here forward) The TS Monitor is Made by Stealth Computers. I am running XenServer 5.6 sp2, XenCenter Version NOT SURE, XenDesktop 5. I have upgraded the Xenith to 1.6x also. Maybe I should try one that is not upgraded.After some advice and looking around on the XenDesktop forums, I found out about USB redirection and turned it on and created some rules that seem to be allowing some communication between the VM and the USB ports. Things got better but are not 100%.So, now when I plug a USB device into the Xenith, both the Xenith and the VM actually see it. So, the issue now seems to be true/full communication.I have both a Aten converter and one of the U232-p9s. From what I have read, the U232 device is the only one this is really supported by Wyse. Strangely, I seem to get closer to getting this working with the Aten, But neither one will actually activate the mouse cursor.Both atapters have send and receive indicators on them. Both will flash to indicate that there is activity when you touch the screen. The Aten gets real active when the MTDs try and load where the U232 just does not seem to get all that excited.Legacy versions of the MTDs with the Aten device, will actually show that they see the the touch screen. When I run the MTD calibration tool, it will actually act like it recognizes you touching the screen but still no mouse activation. This combination does work on a Physical machine.With the U232 device, I can not get the MTDs to see the monitor in anyway shape or form. I really think this has to do with IRQs and IO addresses but can not get the adapters to show me where they are configured.I will be going through the upgrade release notes for the Citrix software here for a while to see if it is worth attempting getting everything upgraded or just stay were we are for now.Any Insight would be greatly appreciated.Edited by: mnason on Sep 29, 2011 10:25 AM
Did you ever find a solution to this? I am currently trying to get a Wirless Sgnature Pad to work in my XenDesktop VM. I am using a converter and I do see the converter showing up as COM4 under Device Manager. However, I cant get sigpad to work. Just doesnt seem to transmit the data.

This USB to Serial converter enables you to connect a RS-232 serial devices such as a modem to a USB port on your Desktop or Notebook PC. It is easy to install by just using universal Plug and Play only.
The driver is generally working, though we still have a few more ioctlsto implement and final testing and debugging to do. The parallel porton the USB 2 is supported as a serial to parallel converter; in otherwords, it appears as another USB serial port on Linux, even thoughphysically it is really a parallel port. The Digi Acceleport USB 8is not yet supported.
This driver supports any device that has the PL2303 chip from Prolificin it. This includes a number of single port USB to serial converters,more than 70% of USB GPS devices (in 2010), and some USB UPSes. Devicesfrom Aten (the UC-232) and IO-Data work with this driver, as doesthe DCU-11 mobile-phone cable. 2b1af7f3a8
