Getting started
HP USB Port Manager allows you to manage USB device access on the thin client. Features include the ability
to block all USB devices, allow only certain USB devices, and set access to USB mass storage devices as readonly.
Supported operating systems
The following table lists the operating systems supported by HP USB Port Manager.
Item
Description
Operating systems
Windows® 10 IoT Enterprise
Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Pro
Windows Embedded 8 Standard

Downloading HP USB Port Manager
HP USB Port Manager is typically preinstalled on HP thin clients. It can also be downloaded or updated via HP
ThinUpdate.
NOTE: If the Control Panel app HP USB Storage Local Security Options is preinstalled on the thin client, you
do not need to uninstall it. The installer for the latest version of HP USB Port Manager uninstalls it
automatically during the installation process.

2.
If you did not enable Block all USB devices, skip this step. If you enabled that setting, see Managing the
whitelist on page 2, and then continue this procedure.
3.
Restart the thin client for the changes to take effect.
If you want to deploy the same configuration to other thin clients, see Exporting the configuration for
deployment on page 3.
Managing the whitelist
You can add specific USB devices or categories of USB devices to the whitelist to be sure that they are always
allowed access to the thin client, even when Block all USB devices is enabled. You can further manage USB
device access in the whitelist by selecting or clearing the corresponding check box next to each item. Selected
USB devices are allowed access, and cleared USB devices are denied access.
NOTE:
The whitelist has no effect if Block all USB devices is disabled.
HP USB Port Manager includes some predefined whitelist items (see Predefined whitelist items on page 3).
To add items to the whitelist:
NOTE:
1.
2.
You cannot add USB devices to the whitelist while Block all USB devices is enabled.
Select Add, and then select one of the following options:
●

●
A USB device with a specific class ID, vendor ID, and product ID—Select a class ID from the list
and enter a product name, vendor ID, and product ID.
●

Tips and best practices
Consider the following information when using HP USB Port Manager:
●
In addition to the All currently connected USB device to connect option, you can use the USBView app
from Microsoft to determine USB device information (go to https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/
windows/hardware/ff560019%28v=vs.85%29.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396).
●
A USB 3.0 hard drive might have a different product ID when attached to a USB 2.0 port. Be sure to add
the allowed USB device twice, using both product IDs.
●
If you uninstall and then reinstall HP USB Port Manager, the following settings are not preserved:
–
Block all USB devices
–
Read-only access to USB mass storage devices
