USB redirection does not work from Horizon Client for Mac to Horizon Agent for Linux on some Android phone (2151674)

  • 0 Ratings


The USB redirection from the Horizon Client on Mac to Horizon Agent for Linux does not work as expected on some Android phones. The Mac client triggers an unexpected device disconnect event.


To avoid the phone from disconnecting, add the following line in the /Library/Preferencs/VMware Fusion/config file in the Mac client.

usb.quirks.device0="<Device Vendor ID>:<Device Product ID> skip-reset"

Obtain the Device Vendor ID and Product ID by executing the following command, which will provide information about the USB devices:

system_profiler SPUSBDataType

For example, if your Device Vendor ID is 0x12d1 and the Device Product ID is 0x1038, you would add the following line in the /Library/Preferences/VMware Fusion/config file:

usb.quirks.device0="0x12d1:0x1038 skip-reset"
