Sharing content and information among different people is a huge deal in the field of technology. More and more, users demand options to share data between one another, and it is up to companies to provide them exactly that: innovative ways of sharing that ease the lives of their users.

Another important aspect of the technology industry is mobility – also important in more fields, really. Making the most out of these two worlds, Eltima Software developed a software USB over Ethernet solution to make USB devices available to all computers within the same network, bet it on the Internet, WAN or LAN – USB Network Gate.

With USB Network Gate, anyone in the world can use any remote USB device, including printers, webcams, scanners or even USB storage devices. In addition, it makes it easy to use USB devices in virtual environments, something that is usually harder than it should be.

Offering support to the most recent operating systems, including Windows, macOS, Linux, and Android, it even allows USB devices to be shared over Wi-Fi, without the need of connecting them to each computer. Eltima is developing another interesting feature for this software, which will allow exclusive sessions to be set up with each device so that no other user can interfere at that time.

USB Network Gate comes with a free 14-day trial period, where it is possible to share a single local USB device. The licensing price starts at $159.95, also for a single device. Additional pricing options are available on the product’s website.

This software can also be used with Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), solving one of its biggest problems: the inability to use local USB devices. With USB Network Gate that is no longer an issue, making USB devices available as if they were actually plugged into that machine.

Eltima’s software solves a real problem in a very elegant way so, if sharing physical devices over a network is something you would like to do, USB Network Gate is the way to go.
