That's what I did.  The settings indicated that the USB port was 
enabled.  It appeared in the menu with the printer as seen by the VB 
container.  But it was greyed out and I couldn't tick the box. So 
although it was seen, it wasn't actually passing the port through to the 
client OS...

Respect the elders. Teach the young. Co-operate with the pack.
Play when you can. Hunt when you must. Rest in between.
Share your affections. Voice your opinion. Leave your Mark.
