Scanner for Remote Desktop Overview


Every day we use different hardware and it is important to have all the necessary devices such as webcams, printers or scanners at your fingertips. Everyone who works in a remote desktop session on a daily basis knows what a problem a simple scanning task may be. Up until now there has been no convenient way to scan within a remote desktop.

Luckily, now you can use software which allows you to work with scanners in a remote desktop session without any hassle.

FabulaTech solution

FabulaTech proudly presents an easy way to use scanners over Microsoft RDP and Citrix ICA protocols. Scanner for Remote Desktop allows redirecting scanners from your local computer exclusively to your remote desktop session without any headache.

How it works

Scanner for Remote Desktop consists of two parts – Workstation and Server. What you need is to install the Workstation part on your local computer and the Server part on the remote side.

The program creates a virtual scanner on the remote side and the system takes it as if it were a real hardware scanner attached directly to the remote machine. As soon as the scanner drivers are installed on the local computer all you need to do is simply login to your remote desktop session. That's all it takes!

Secure and separate access

Scanner for Remote Desktop takes care of your confidential information safety. If you work in a multi-user environment and there is more than one user logged in, your local scanner will be isolated from other users within its individual remote session. No one but you can scan from it or even see it in the system.

Single-user and multi-user environments

Scanner for Remote Desktop works perfectly in Terminal Servers or in any single-user system. It provides you with extensively flexible solution for easy and comfortable work in almost any environment, even virtual.
