UIUC AnyWare, Using Local Devices

When connected to a UIUC AnyWare session, you can utilize devices (USB storage, or headset) that are attached to your local machine.

After connecting to UIUC AnyWare, your session will recognize devices currently attached to your local machine and prompt you to enable them during the session.

Select this prompt when it appears:

After selecting the above prompt, a new window will appear that will be similar to this:

Select the checkbox next to the device(s) that you would like to have available during your session and select Connect.

Selecting All Devices is not recommended.
Some devices may not need to be enabled for your session. 

For example, the image above shows Logitech USB Receivers which in this case, are wireless keyboard and mouse. Making a wireless keyboard and mouse available in the session would not be necessary because they are being used on the local machine.
