Option 1: HSB to COM Driver for Remote Usage HSB-R Pads


The Topaz HSB to COM driver is the recommended option to allow any Topaz HSB signature pad (HID USB) to operate as a BSB pad (virtual serial via USB) on a Windows PC or a Windows-embedded thin client. The driver creates a virtual COM port on the client. With the HSB to COM driver, pad users with model numbers ending in "HSB-R" can use their device in a server-based remote environment, such as Citrix XenApp or Terminal Server via an RDC.

Option 2: SigSock for Remote Usage HSB-R Pads


SigSock™ is an interface that allows Topaz® "HSB®" (HID USB) signature pads to be used in a Citrix or Terminal Server environment.


Essentially, a small client utility is placed on the client computer and run, which collects data from the signature pad as the author signs. From there, the data is sent over to the server (using TCP Ports 47289, 47290, and 47800) where SigPlus® collects it.



SigSock system requirements:


1. The client machines must be full Windows-based fat clients (for example, running Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8). Alternately, thin client terminals running XPe, Windows Embedded 7 or 8 are also options. However, thin client terminals running any other operating system (for example, Wyse terminals running Linux-based thin operating systems or WinCE) will not work with SigSock.


2. You must copy a small EXE on the client machine and run it, passing command line parameters to set up the system properly.
