To connect to the remote USB devices, you will need to share them on the USB over Ethernet server first.
When a USB device is being shared, it becomes inaccessible for use on the computer it is connected to.
To connect to the shared USB devices over WAN, make sure that the server is assigned with the public IP address.
Since USB Network Gate shares a USB port and not an individual device, you will be able to hot-swap the devices connected to the shared USB port and they will become automatically shared as well.
You can create a callback (reverse) connection. It is a connection with a client that is initiated from the server computer.
Set TCP port, which will be used in the connection.
Traffic compression helps to speed up the interaction with certain types of USB devices and reduces Internet traffic.
Note: It is not advised to use this option with isochronous USB devices, like audio cards, webcams, etc.
You can select between 2 traffic compression algorithms: best ratio or speed (set by default) under “Options” in the main menu:
When you select another traffic compression option, the change will be applied to a newly created connection.
Enabling traffic encryption is recommended for security reasons. All sent data will be encrypted, although it may slow down the communication speed.
By enabling password authorization, you can set a password that the user will have to enter on the client to connect to a remote USB device.
Note: In the Linux of USB Network Gate, you can change traffic encryption and/or compression settings on-the-go for already shared devices. Just double-click the corresponding field next to the required device.
Set a custom name for a shared USB device that will be displayed on both the server and client computers. It can help you identify devices that have the same name by default.
Alternatively, you can change the name of the already shared device by double-clicking the device’s description field:
