Share USB over RDP

USB Network Gate (former USB to Ethernet Connector) was developed and is constantly improved in order to provide you with the best, most flexible solution for easy access to any local USB device while working in remote desktop session.
Available for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android

Common problem

Those, who work in remote desktop session often, are well aware of the fact that when you connect to remote desktop via Remote Desktop Protocol client, you are unable to use USB devices connected to your local computer anymore.

How USB Network Gate solves it

USB Network Gate from Eltima Software is an excellent solution when you need to provide USB access to Remote Desktop users. Any USB devices connected to your network can be shared with any network-attached user with USB Network Gate. You simply install the application on the machine that has the device physically attached and the remote machines with which you plan to share the resource.

Shared USB devices can be identified automatically by client machines when using USB Network Gate. When you turn on your computer the devices will appear as if they were directly, physically connected to your machine.

USB Network Gate also allows you to share USB devices with thin clients. Just plug your USB peripherals into the local thin client machine and they can be accessed from a remote desktop.

The Citrix ICA protocols are fully supported in USB Network Gate version 7.0. This allows you to control access to the shared USB devices. You can assign a device to a specific RDP user, making it inaccessible to all other users in a multi-user environment.

RemoteFX USB Redirection (MS-RDPEUSB) is supported in the Linux version of USB Network Gate. This enables the redirection of a shared USB device from a Linux machine to a remote Windows client with no need to install the software on the remote computer. The Windows machine can make use of the peripheral devices as if they were locally connected.

*If shared USB devices are supported by RemoteFX USB Redirection. Otherwise you'll need to install USB Network Gate on Windows client.

Real-life experience

Q: Were you facing any issues that this type of software could resolve?

Aaron: Yes. We have a terminal services environment and need to be able to use a USB barcode scanner with a remote computer. The remote machine is running an application that processes the data generated by the scanner. We had no problem running this setup on a single machine, but when the TS server was involved we could not access the scanner remotely.
