USB Network Gate enables to access USB over IP from any network-attached computer. Here is the guide how to download the USB over IP software to the operating system of your choice and follow the steps outlined below to share USB devices over the Internet or any TCP/IP network.
Once it is shared, a USB device becomes inaccessible for use on the local computer to which it is attached.
Sharing a USB over IP is very similar to making a hard disk accessible to other network users. Accessing the key from a client machine requires it to first be shared from the local computer.
An external IP address is required when sharing USB over TCP/IP. This allows the devices to be seen and accessed from other machines.
The USB device should be connected to the shared port on the server machine in order to be shared by a client computer. Sharing the port after the device has been plugged in is recommended although you can first share the port if you are certain which one is free. When that is done you can attach the USB device to the port.
