windows 10 - how to allow access to usb port devices in a RDP remote desktop session?

Problem:
in a remote desktop session it was not possible to connect to the usb connect CrossChex Time Attendance & Access Control device

Solution:
- set the right group policy!

1) Edit Group Policy
2) Local Group Policy Editor: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Removable Storage Access
(in german this is: Wechselmedienzugriff!)
3) in the folder locate entries that have something to do with remote access - set this policies to enabled
(in german it is: Remotezugriff auf die Plug & Play-Schnittstelle zulassen)
4) apply the policy and reboot the system
