The only USB "passthrough" is for USB storage only. You would need to investigate other product, unfortunately.

I send you the below text extracted from the Configuration Guide of Flex Server. It is a software supplier for locked software with/without dongle USBs.
From Page (you can see a full copy: www.globes.com/support/utilities/fnp_LicAdmin_11_12_1.pdf) 191:
Thank you in advance.

You need a USB Device Server. I have used this with success on 6.0.2:
That setup will also work for XenMotion.

I am real sorry that hardware vendor listed XenServer for USB pass-through for dongle to read license, as it is wrong. We have only supported storage devices via USB and nothing more.
Ideally, you would have the USB device connected to network device so that it is accessible that way from virtual or physical machine.

For a WIndows server running under XenServer and requiring other devices aside from storage to be able to leverage USB connectivity, this is a highly desired option that I really hope will be incorporated into a future XenServer release. We have a number of cases where lab equipment (e.g., cameras, signing pads, etc.) could and should be able to run much more effectively using multiple logins onto a Windows server. With a GPU, this would be the ideal lab setup and scale way better than having to set up individual XenDesktop instances. Please, Citrix, consider adding support for this.

If you can post to feature request forum, that would be great.

@James: OK, the request has been posted! Thanks for the suggestion!

@Tobias: Awesome. I gave thumbs up. Lets hope we see more. I see this as a critical need for small to medium business, where there is a higher chance of using XenServer in non-pooled environment.

In any environment, pooled or otherwise. this would be extremely valuable, as we have already found out through our own needs and investigations.
Many thanks for the suggestion to post to the request forum area. I am unclear what the Citrix employee audience is that reads those requests, but if the word isn't spread, it does no good to promote a need. Again, thanks for your suggestion and support, James!

I believe that the XenServer project management team does review and/or participate.

I use usbredirector for linux installed on xenserver 6.2 http://www.incentivespro.com/usb-server.html (free) and for windows client you need the client version for windows (paid).
The share is over the lan
I share 2 umts datacard from xenserver, 1 to asterisk for sms and mobile calls and 1 to win2003 server for sms. Both VM are running on Xenserver, but you can use usb devices wherever you want over your lan.
