USB over Ethernet known issues in macOS version

Electronic Team Electronic Team

Developers of USB over Ethernet app for macOS are doing their best to improve the service, but still there are questions from our users. Here we will try to answer for at least a couple of them. So, USB over Ethernet has the following known issues:

  • I get “Administrator of this Mac disabled your user account from accessing USB Network Gate ” message once I start the GUI…
    Please remember that the current user should be a member of the “staff” group.
    To check if the user belongs to the “staff” group, launch the Terminal app and execute:

    dscl . -read /groups/staff | grep GroupMembership

    To add a user to the “staff” group, run:

    sudo dscl . -append /groups/staff GroupMembership <user>

    replacing with the numeric user ID or the account name.

  • Why do I get the “System Extension Blocked ” message?

    Since the macOS High Sierra 10.13 introduction, all newly-installed third-party kernel extensions (KEXTs) require manual user approval before loading. When a request is made to load a KEXT that the user has not yet approved, the load request is denied and macOS presents the alert.

    As USB Network Gate for macOS contains a number of KEXTs, a manual approval is a required condition for the proper functioning of the app.
    To approve the KEXTs used by USB Network Gate for macOS, please go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and click the “Allow ” button.
