With USB Network Gate you get to efficiently share multiple USB devices over network and connect to them on remote machines as if the devices were physically plugged into the computers regardless of the location or distance between them.
USB Network Gate offers a number of handy features that make sharing USB over network an easy and quick process. Now any user can print, scan, access USB license dongles and USB hubs over Ethernet from any computer in your office, no matter how big it is and how many floors it occupies.
The common problem you may face when using Remote Desktop Connection is that you are unable to access local USB devices. USB Network Gate allows you to work with any local USB devices even while in a remote session. Moreover, you can set your remote machine to automatically detect and connect to shared USB devices momentarily, as if you just plugged the device in a remote machine physically.
In a multi-user environment of terminal servers, it is hard to get exclusivity in USB device usage. USB Network Gate allows assigning a USB device to a specific user in their RDP session. No other users can access the device at that time. This feature is currently available for USB flash drives and USB cameras in testing mode.
USB Network Gate supports native RemoteFX USB Redirection (MS-RDPEUSB), allowing you to redirect shared devices from your local Linux computer to a remote Windows client without installing USB Network Gate on the latter. Note that shared USB devices have to be supported by RemoteFX USB Redirection. Otherwise, you'll need to install USB Network Gate on Windows client.Share USB devices over RDP
USB Network Gate easily shares various types of USB devices over the network in just a couple of clicks:
When the Internet connection is not available, USB Network Gate can share USB over LAN.
The server is the computer where the USB device being shared is attached physically; the computer that connects to the device remotely is the client.
Only a single system will be able to use the device at a time since simultaneous access to remote USB ports is not technically possible.
There is USB Network Gate for Windows, Mac, and Linux that you can install on each participating device or computer. This way you can create any server-client combination you require, e.g. you can share USB over IP on Mac and connect it on Windows PC and vice versa.
