Dell R820 USB Virtual Devices

I have setup this tool on Dell R820 USB Virtual Devices running on a VM windows 10 inside XCP-ng.

I can't get any USB device to show up in the Client screen.

Michael,

Many thanks for the pointer

I've made sure the windows firewall and AVAST are both shutdown.... I restarted the USB Server. I still can't see any device.

Any thought on what tool I can run to test the USB Port or what might be blocking? I do run the system on VPN .........

Many thanks

OK no you cannot run virtualhere server inside a VM. You are running the virtualhere windows server inside QEMU so it wont work properly because it cannot access the USB devices reliably via the hypervisor.

Note that the virtualhere *client* will work fine inside a QEMU or any VM

Well then I'm lost, you

Well then I'm lost, you indicated " You cannot run virtualhere server inside a VM" ..... I thought you installed the VirtualHere .exe inside the windows VM running in XCP-ng.

Where did I go wrong?
