USB Network Gate adds a New Kind of Connectivity

Have you ever left a USB device in your home machine and needed it at work? Maybe you?ve got a certain device you want to use but you?re out of free ports? There?s a way around both problems. USB Network Gate allows you to tell your PC or laptop that a USB device plugged in elsewhere is actually plugged in to that machine using the internet. This kind of problem solving makes a program really worthwhile especially with a free trial.

Access USB Devices Anywhere

USB Network Gate essentially connects a USB device to your machine over the internet LAN or WLAN. No matter how far away you are you can interact with a device plugged into another machine as if it were right there. This solves cross-platform compatibility issues and allows easy sharing for example letting any office PC use a printer connected to a certain machine. You can also isolate devices locking them to one user at a time. This software can let you operate as if you have unlimited USB ports or you could plug a gamepad into a laptop but tunnel it to the PC making it almost wireless.

Connectivity Improved

USB Network Gate is useful but only for fairly specific scenarios. It?s only worth the money if you have a problem in mind that needs solving. You can try it unregistered but device amounts are limited. The interface could be nicer but the software works very reliably.

Access remote USB devices over Network.

With USB over Network Connector you will never experience any issues accessing and using the USB devices that are plugged into remote computers. You can work with those devices as if they were physically connected to your local machine. All that is needed to do for that is install USB over Network Connector on the computer with USB device physically attached (server) and on the computer where you want to use this device (client). USB over IP Connector will do all the rest. No additional hardware needed!

BTW you can choose whether Mac, Linux or Windows machine will be a client or a server. Not only this software allows accessing USB devices over Ethernet, but it's also suitable for servers and workstations virtualization. I.e. It will help you access and use local USB devices in a virtual session. Thanks to USB over Network Connector you can easily work with USB devices on guest OS of such virtual environments as VMware ESX, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V, Windows Virtual PC, etc. With USB over Network Connector it's possible to work with any local USB devices in a remote session. It also allows you to integrate its useful functionality into your own software (OEM licensing). Since version 7.0 USB Network Gate supports ICA protocol by Citrix.
