I need to be able to access the USB ports of the desktop I am connecting to. The USB ports may have disk drives connected to them, HASP keys, etc.

RemoteFX seems way overkill for what I want to achieve

So, for example, you cannot go to My Computer > X: on the remote computer, where X: is the USB drive? – iglvzx May 30 '12 at 0:55
Note that you can only use a HASP key remotely if the application specifically allows it. By default, the HASP key logic disallows remote use of a HASP key. – David Schwartz May 30 '12 at 1:06
I can get to the HASP key remotely via an IT administrator app called secure.logmein, However the UI is not suitable for the remote desktop connection user. I need the user to come in via RDP and be able to see the USB drives be they HASP keys or disk drives or memory sticks etc. I do not believe it is a HASP Key issue -- if it were I should not be able to access it via Secure.Logmein. When I come in via RDP I cannot see the USB drives. – Neerja May 30 '12 at 4:19
