How to establish a USB to Parallels remote desktop connection
Let’s say you have an Android smartphone physically attached to one Mac and your aim is to access this phone from a virtual machine on Parallels Desktop launched on another remote Mac. On the surface, it seems pretty challenging, as Parallels doesn’t offer a native method to achieve this.
But that’s where a dedicated third-party tool, USB over Network, comes into play. USB over Network (aka USB Network Gate) is an increasingly popular cross-platform app designed for remote access to USB ports and devices.
It works with all major platforms, including macOS, Windows, Linux and Android. It allows redirecting USB to a virtual environment, an RDP session and any remote computer across the Internet and LAN.
