USB Network Gate enables you to share any USB device among multiple computers, perfect if you need to print, scan or fax from any computer. There is the option to add a password so that you can control remote access too.
As well as sharing USB peripherals, USB Network Gate also allows you to connect a USB device to virtual machine software or blade servers. This is a great feature because it means you can quickly and easily access your USB devices from a remote virtual desktop. It's compatible with VMware, VMware ESX, Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft Hyper-V.
USB Network Gate is the ideal choice if you need to share a USB device in the office. Rather than changing existing network configurations, you can simply share an USB printer, scanner or other device on a single PC and then it can be accessed wirelessly from other desktops or laptops in the office.
USB Network Gate is probably more suited to a business environment, ideal if you are a network administrator. The interface lacks a little luster but that probably won't matter to a network pro.
