USB over Network is a straightforward piece of software that lets you share a wide range of USB devices over the local network, as well as access these devices on other workstations remotely, in the same manner.
You can install either client or server application, or both. After a brief and uneventful setup procedure, you can check out the standard, user-friendly interface.
Upon deployment, the server application automatically lists all devices that can be shared. An important aspect to mention is that, once you have shared a USB flash disk or other device, it becomes inaccessible on your computer. Thus, users should pay special attention to the devices they can share by accident (e.g. keyboard).
The Preferences panel lets you modify the TCP port, enable the automatic sharing of the selected device and allow the connection to occupied items, as well as use server certificates.
From the client standpoint, you can connect to a remote USB device by specifying the workstation’s IP address or host name, and TCP port in use. Plus, you can enable the automatic connection to all shared USB devices from the server. The Preferences screen lets you use a trusted authority certificate, client authentication certificate and client private key.
USB over Network is very light on the system resources, as it uses a minimum amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and works smoothly, without hanging, crashing or popping up error dialogs; we haven’t encountered any issues throughout our evaluation.
To sum it up, USB over Network provides users with a straightforward solution to share and remotely access any shared USB devices, including exotic ones, thanks to its intuitive layout and overall simplicity.
USB Over Network is a handy and reliable application that allows you to easily share an external USB drive or a printer over a network.
Lab instruments, scanners, cameras, card readers, bar code scanners, PDAs, USB keys and others are usually considered to be non-shareable. Thus, normally you need to move your USB devices from one computer to another.
Sometimes, though, this is not an easy task, especially when you need to use a device that is physically located in another building or even another city. USB is the standard interface used by most modern computer devices today. But, USB was designed to connect electronic peripherals only to a single computer.
Previously, the only way to share a non-shareable device was to buy an expensive hardware USB switch. A hardware switch takes up space, consumes power and is often quite expensive.
USB Over Network is a revolutionary software solution from FabulaTech. No need to move devices from one computer to another, and no need to buy expensive hardware switches. You can access a USB device connected to a remote computer from your computer via a LAN or the Internet as if it were physically plugged into your own PC.
The program consists of a “Server” and a “Client”. You should install the Server on the computer to which the device you want to share is physically connected. You can install the Client on all PCs from which you need to access the shared device.
USB Over Network is easy to install and use. It supports a wide range of USB devices. This software will not require you to have any special knowledge and will install easily right out of the box. Share your USB device without risk of losing it! Access remote instruments without leaving your chair!
