When working with virtualization products for servers you can face a major issue. I.e. such virtualization programs as VMware ESX, Microsoft Hyper-V and others do not feature USB ports in virtual machines. As a result you can't use USB devices (security dongles, smart cards, etc.) physically plugged in a host computer on virtual servers.
USB Network Gate allows attaching a USB device to a guest OS running on Virtual Server. All you have to do is install USB Network Gate on host OS of any computer on your network and share a USB device there. Also install USB Network Gate on guest OS of any computer on your network, where you want to use the device, and connect to a shared one! USB Network Gate provides USB passthrough to guest OS running on Virtual Server. The OS will treat this USB device as a real one and you can work with it as if it were connected directly to your Virtual Machine.
Question: What challenges made you search for this kind of software?
Alexey: We are using Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V Virtual Machine and there is no USB connectivity to guest machine. A USB to Ethernet software is the only software kind that is able to provide USB connectivity to guest virtual machines.
Question: Please, describe how you are using our product now
Alexey: 1C Financial Program requires HASP USB Key License to work. There is no other way to make it work under virtual machine, other than over Network. So we are using USB to Ethernet Connector to provide license to virtual guest machine.
Question: How did you benefit from using Eltima solution?
Alexey: Your solution has awesome stability and does not require restarting of the server. This feature is very important to us, as the main task of any server is to serve 24x7x365. The other nice feature is handy and pretty GUI.
USB Network Gate can easily organize passthrough of USB devices from host OS to a guest OS on virtual machine. USB to Ethernet Connector supports VMware ESX/ESXi, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V.
Thanks to USB Network Gate you can access and use USB devices connected to a local PC from a remote desktop session as if they were connected to a remote computer directly.
