Share USB devices over Ethernet or Internet, access remote USB devices as if they are plugged into your local computer!
USB over Ethernet is a professional software solution allowing to use USB devices remotely through a LAN, Internet or any other network connection.
USB over Ethernetallows you to share USB devices over IP. You can connect to a shared USB device and use it just like it is plugged in your machine. And there is no need to install USB device's driver on the computer where it is physically plugged in.
How it works:
To start redirecting USB devices you need to install USB over Ethernet on a computer where USB devices are physically plugged in. Another copy of the program needs to be installed on the computer where you want to use USB devices remotely. Once the program is installed, users can start sharing their USB devices or access remote USB devices.
USB over Ethernet is useful for:
Software developers for integration of USB over Ethernet functionality into their application. USB devices could be shared and connected from the application, thanks to the command-line interface.
Corporations, offices for accessing remote USB devices that are physically located in another office. This eliminates the need to purchase additional devices.
Companies where several users need to use a single unique, heavy or very specific USB equipment. The device can rest in the server room attached to the server's USB port, while users using it one after another. No need to move the device around.
USB over Ethernet works with:
Mass storage devices
Printers, scanners, bar code readers, and many others
