Using this USB redirector software as USB Network Gate allows you to define client remote computers that interact with USB devices connected to a server
. The USB redirector client
machines gain full functionality to the network-attached peripheral devices and can use them as if they were physically connected. When using USB redirection, the devices are recognized as local devices by applications so there is no negative impact on system performance.
USB redirector does not share the actual devices. It works by sharing the USB ports which then enables devices to be hot-swapped using the shared interface. You can unplug a device and connect a new one which will be immediately made available to the remote client.
