Serial Passthru with VMWare Horizon Client for Android.

Does anyone know if the Serial Pass Thru works with the Horizon Android client?  If so what options need to be turned on to enable it?
We have the serial pass thru working with the Windows Horizon client, but the USB Serial ports don't show up on the Android Client.

I've tried numerous different types of USB to serial adapters. XChipI-X was recommended by Panasonic.

Thank you

No, Serial port redirection isn't available on Android client yet.

Why do you need this functionality?

We may talk to our PM to put it into roadmap if needed.

Thanks.

We want to use VDI/Horizon desktop on Panasonic Toughbook A3 Android tablets for a warehousing application that requires a specific industrial scale that uses a serial port.  We have the VDI Horizon client running on a Windows 10 Toughbook with a USB to serial adapter working perfectly.
The Android version of the tablet is thinner lighter, easier to manage using MDM software, more reliable, and less vulnerable to security attacks.
