USB over Network

6.0.6.1

Set the software to easily share a particular USB port and any USB device plugged into it will get shared automatically within minutes

USB over Network is a straightforward piece of software that lets you share a wide range of USB devices over the local network, as well as access these devices on other workstations remotely, in the same manner.
You can install either client or server application, or both. After a brief and uneventful setup procedure, you can check out the standard, user-friendly interface.
Upon deployment, the server application automatically lists all devices that can be shared. An important aspect to mention is that, once you have shared a USB flash disk or other device, it becomes inaccessible on your computer. Thus, users should pay special attention to the devices they can share by accident (e.g. keyboard).
The Preferences panel lets you modify the TCP port, enable the automatic sharing of the selected device and allow the connection to occupied items, as well as use server certificates.
From the client standpoint, you can connect to a remote USB device by specifying the workstation's IP address or host name, and TCP port in use. Plus, you can enable the automatic connection to all shared USB devices from the server. The Preferences screen lets you use a trusted authority certificate, client authentication certificate and client private key.
USB over Network is very light on the system resources, as it uses a minimum amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and works smoothly, without hanging, crashing or popping up error dialogs; we haven't encountered any issues throughout our evaluation.
To sum it up, USB over Network provides users with a straightforward solution to share and remotely access any shared USB devices, including exotic ones, thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity.
