USB not redirected to remote windows 2003 server

Environment:   (using the free evaluation copy of USB for remote desktop)
client (desktop) = windows XP SP3
RDP server = windows 2003 various flavours (sp2, R2 sp2, citrix)
 
Installed client and server elements of USB over remote desktop
 
Client-side seems to work OK - sees the USB drives (mass storage devices  = Cruzer Sandisk, titanium) and redirects as asked
 
Launch server RDP session and no sign of anything - nothing at all (2 different servers) - logged in with reduced and admin permissions - done ther troubelshooting options on the client
 
No firewalls on
 
Are there any obvious gotchas that might cause this behaviour ? you can see the fabulatech virtual usb bus in the hardware properties (presumably this is what the USB over RDP service does) but that s all - removed all poss conflicting drives out the way (CD roms etc) still no sign
 
many thanks
 
JOHN

Hello John,
 
What is the version of USB for RDP and are the versions of Workstation and Server part of the software the same?  
Can you see the connection ID on USB for RDP Server or is it just nothing there?
 
Please try to auto-redirect the devices from USB for RDP Workstation (settings->properties->auto-redirection and replug the device).
 
Did you rebooted after the installation?

Thanks Alex
 
Version is 2.8  (for both)
connection ID non existent
 
Client is a dell GX 755, servers are 1 x xenserver guest server and 1 x physical dell server  
 
we are using auto-redirection though we have tried manual  - same result

Latest on this:
 
Got it to work with a different (third) PC that only has XP sp2 on it
It works abs fine
 
So the issue is poss XP SP or patch versin - some KB patches are stopping the USB redirecting, possibly

John, thanks for additional details.  
Please check if you have the process  ftusbrdp.exe running on the server.
If it's running but you still see nothing on USB for RDP Server shell please restart the process manually (ftusbrdp.exe from c:\windows\system32. ).
 
Please let me know the result.
