Updated usbredir packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The usbredir packages provide a network protocol for sending USB device traffic over a network connection and a number of libraries to help implement support for this protocol.

Bug Fix

Previously, USB redirection over plain Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) sockets with the usbredir packages installed did not work. The USB was not properly redirected in this situation, even though USB redirection over Spice channels worked as expected. This update fixes a bug in the usbredir protocol parser that was causing this problem. As a result, USB redirection over plain TCP sockets now works as expected.
Users of usbredir are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
