    Terminal Services +USB

    Just a quick question about TS (I don't use it). Does USB work at the local workstation (terminal), and are there any other restrictions\problems which would affect a school should they choose to use it as their sole method of computer useage?

    If you tick bring local devices > Disk drives and test this with a USB drive and connecting to another machine you will see it in my computer on the remote session. You would have to set a policy on this though to stop it showing them all.

    can't speak specifically about RDP -but in Citrix TS USB is well supported.
    Printers/scanners and USB disks (cameras etc) are fine - more exotic hardware generally doesn't work.

    Suitable for a primary school?

    This is the kind of thing you will end up under other drives if the local machine has a lot of mapped/local drives as well so it could be potentially unfriendly.
