Connect to USB Devices Remotely in FlexiHub for Mac

To connect to a remote USB device, find it in the list of available devices (i.e. devices on your remote FlexiHub nodes that are not locked), and click Connect:

connect-255x300

Set the compression level for the USB traffic:

connect-menu-255x300

This option helps speed up interaction with certain types of USB devices and reduce Internet traffic. You may find this useful for USB devices which transfer data in uncompressed format, like scanners.

It is recommended not to use this option for USB devices which transfer incompressible types of data, e.g. isochronous USB devices (audio cards, web cams, etc.).

For example, web cam video compression is enabled by default, and further compression can result in degrading video quality.

 

To disconnect from a USB device, click Disconnect respectively:

disconnect-255x300

Disconnect can be performed from any node in your account.
