USB via Ethernet software key features

USB over Ethernet software offers a set of powerful features that make access to remote USB devices as simple as possible.

USB over Ethernet

Manage USB equipment over the network

With the ability to share USB over Ethernet, you can provide the personnel of your office with access to multiple valuable peripherals, which eliminates the need to buy additional devices and cables. USB over LAN software allows secure wireless connections to remote USB equipment no matter how far it is located.

Get full access to remote devices

Once you create a connection to a remote USB device, this peripheral appears in your system like it was plugged into your machine. This way, you can use a remote USB printer, scanner, 3D mouse, webcam or even a security dongle without having it physically present near your PC.

Work with local peripherals over RDP

While in an RDP session, you may need to redirect local USB devices to a remote desktop so that they become available for access from a remote computer. USB over Ethernet by Electronic Team, Inc. can do this perfectly well for you.
USB in Virtual machine

Connecting to USB in a virtual machine

Whether you run a VirtualBox, Hyper-V, XenDesktop, or VMware virtual machine on your PC, with the USB sharing software, you’ll be able to forward locally attached devices to a virtual environment with just a few clicks of your mouse.

Isolation NEW

Easy USB Device Isolation For Windows OS

Since Windows does not provide users with tools that can help them limit the accessibility of a USB device to specified users, an obvious security risk is involved when there are numerous people using the same computer. Or working on a terminal server hosting several Remote Desktop Sessions at once. USB over Ethernet software by Electronic Team allows users to resolve the issue of isolating USB Devices.

USB Device Isolation

Session-Based USB Device Isolation

Session-Based USB device isolation enables the user to assign a USB device to a specified Remote Desktop Session, while simultaneously making it undetectable/inaccessible to other sessions. Users may be sure that their USB devices cannot be utilized by another unauthorized RDP session.

User-Based USB Device Isolation

You can choose to make access to your USB device based on a specific user ID. Per-User USB Device isolation means that only authorized user accounts on Windows can utilize the USB device. User-based isolation is very helpful if a computer is accessed by multiple user-accounts on a regular basis.

Note: Currently, USB Device Isolation has been tested on cameras, office hardware(such as printers and scanners), external hard drives, sound cards, 3D mouse devices, and more. USB Device Isolation feature is compatible with Windows 8 OS and newer- as well as all Windows Server versions.
