TSX Scan

Scan directly with any TWAIN or WIA application from any client attached scanner over the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP).

Version 1.1.370 • Windows • 97 MB •   Changelog

Driverless scanner redirection

With TSX Scan you can simply forward the scanner from the client to the server within a RDP session. It does not require any driver installation of the scanner on the server.

Especially developed for multi-user environments such as XP/VS Terminal Server and Microsoft Remote Desktop Services and the scanner is always assigned to one unique user. This makes TSX Scan ideal for medical environments.

All latest Windows operating systems are supported.

Highly efficient compression to reduce network traffic.

Free 14-day
trial version.

Reducenetwork traffic

The scan jobs are compressed, reducing network traffic up to 90%. TSX Scan creates a virtual channel within the Remote Desktop session. The scan job is performed on the client side and only the scanned data is transfered to the server to the RDP session.

TSX Scan is licensed for “named clients”, which means that every TSX Scan client connecting to your server will automatically reserve a slot for the client. This reservation is as long valid until you delete it manually.

Support for Windows 11
