Securing Connection

To secure connection to a USB device, perform the following steps:

Share Local USB Devices

  1. Enter a password in the Password and Retype fields.
  2. For additional security, you can select the Encryption checkbox. This option protects the data that is sent from the USB device.
  3. Click Share.

To securely connect to the USB device, enter the password on a remote computer. Users who do not know the password cannot access the USB device, and if the Encryption option is enabled, information that is sent to or from the shared USB device cannot be “sniffed” (intercepted).
