With USB Network Gate you can:


  1. Provide shared access to USB over IP/ LAN/ WAN/ VLAN/ VPN/ Internet

    The software shares a single device among multiple computers in the network in an easy and efficient way. Now you can send documents for a printout to the MFD connected to your colleague’s computer in a different country. To protect a USB device from unauthorized access, you can set up a password.

  2. Reach USB ports in virtual environment and blade servers

    USB Network Gate installed on a guest OS – be it a virtual machine or blade server – enables throughput to USB ports of the host machine. The software supports all popular virtualization applications – Vmware, VMware ESX, Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft Hyper-V.

  3. Work with USB ports over RDP

    Remote Desktop Connection typically does not allow accessing USB ports. USB Network Gate fixes this problem once and for all, you can set it up to detect and connect to USB devices immediately once they are attached to the system.

  4. Work with USB ports over Wi-Fi

    If you have a wireless network in the office or at home, there is no need to set up another network. Use the existing one – no changes required. USB devices – printers, scanners, etc. – can be shared over Wi-Fi in a simple and efficient way.

  5. Share USB devices in individual sessions

    With USB Network Gate it is possible to provide exclusive access to a USB device – more often than not, especially when we work via terminal servers, it is necessary. You can assign a device to a specific user, no one else can access it then. The feature is currently being tested and supported for USB flash drives and cameras. Starting with version 7.0 USB Network Gate supports Citrix ICA protocol.
