It’s often necessary to remotely access USB devices attached to a computer using a network connection. The connectivity may be provided through a local area network (LAN), WiFi, or the Internet. You can share virtually any remote USB device using hardware or software solutions. Before you can share a USB device with a remote user, it needs to be shared on the computer that is physically connected to the peripheral.
USB Network Gate is an essential USB sharing solution by Electronic Team, Inc. that lets you share USB devices over network. Please go on reading to find out how to share USB port with a device plugged into it using USB over Network software.

Fortunately USB Network Gate makes it possible to isolate the device and grant access on a Per-User Isolation.
It's also possible to enable traffic encryption. All data sent via network will be encrypted. However this may slow down the communication speed.
