Hello!

I have a GDI printer that is "blacklisted" on Linux.

Therefore I want to share this printer on a Windows VM where drivers are available.

Question:
If I connect the printer to USB port, how does Proxmox VE pass this printer to the dedicated Windows VM?

This functionality is available e.g. with VirtualBox.

Re: [Q] USB connected GDI printer passthrough to Windows VM

From command line do
lsusb

write the ID in your memory :)

intercept the line of your usb device and put this in the
/etc/pve/qemu-server-VMID.conf

usb0: host=051d:0003

then

qm shutdown VMID
qm start VMID

Ciao
