What are people saying about USB Network Gate for Windows

Good Guy This webpage says "Share an unlimited number of USB devices between multiple computers on a network.", but your website showed it only supports sharing one device. Each additional device increased the cost quite a bit.

Can you please tell us if we can use an unlimited number of USB devices at home with this version for NO addition cost?

my opinion "So say goodbye to expensive USB hardware splitters..."
Well, the software itself is also not unexpensive, which negates its advantages.

Dan P I've been waiting for software like this for a long time and believe me I've looked and tried various methods to share my printer on my local network.  Sadly, USB to Ethernet Connect did not work for me either despite me making exceptions for the programs specified and ports.  I wish I knew a bit more as to why I can't get any of my peripherals shared.

Alexander Deliyannis Interesting software. I am personally most in need of the next version, currently in beta, which will also support Linux. When do you expect this to be released? If it is in less than a month, will your 'grace period' also apply to Bits du Jour purchasers?

anthonyraynor This is a per shared device license, so really think about how many devices you really want to share before purchasing. Can you switch between devices as long as only one device is connected at a time?

Alexander Deliyannis Bottom of the http://www.eltima.com/pro...-ethernet/ , just above Buy Now: " Please, note: licensing is based on the number of devices you can share, not the number of people using the shared device.

Julia Rixon Thank you very much for your comments.

1. If you have problems regarding software usage, please contact our support team at supporteltima.com.

2. As for Linux version, we are planning to release it in September this year. Linux edition of USB to Ethernet Connector will be compatible with Windows version. So you will be able to share USB devices on Linux machine and connect to the remote devices from both Linux and Windows Clients.

3. Concerning our Licensing policy, it is based on two parameters:

- number of devices you want to share on your Server (e.g. License for 1 shared USB device we will offer with 60% discount at Bitsdujour tomorrow);

- number of servers you are planning to share devices from.

Client module is free. It means unlimited number of clients can access shared USB port.

Registration is required for USB to Ethernet Connector server module only. You do not need to register USB to Ethernet Connector client module.

E.g., if you purchased Single license for 1 USB device - this License allows the Licensee to share one USB device per system the Software is installed on. Any number of users may connect to this device remotely.

Note! Only one client can connect to a shared remote USB device at a time.

Doug Atkinson I have an older NetGear USB Print server that cost about $30, but it fails to support all of the printer features (at least for my particular printer). I can print single pages just fine, but doing manual double sided prints fails over the network.

Does USB to Ethernet Connector support all the functions of a USB device, just as if it was connected directly?

Also, the pricing page shows only a Single license, but allows you to purchase more than one copy. Is this the same as purchasing multiple licenses? For example, I might want to share a Printer and a USB drive from the same "server" PC. Do I use one instance of USB to Ethernet Connector to support them both, or do two instances run anyway?

Thanks!

Julia Rixon Dear Doug, Thanks for your interest in our product. USB to Ethernet Connector letsyou access any USB device (printer, scanner, flash drive, humaninterface device, etc) that is located on a remote PC overLAN/WAN/VLAN/VPN or Internet and use this device as if it were pluggedto your local PC. All applications that work with the device won't seethe difference and will treat it as a local one. According to the information you provided USB to Ethernet Connector[Single License, 2 shared USB devices] suites your needs the most. ThisLicense allows you to share two USB devices per system the Software isinstalled on. We can offer you discount for this license whilepurchasing via our site, please contact us at saleseltima.com. But in fact, USB to Ethernet Connector shares USB ports rather than devices. As the benefit of this approach, you may plug in a USB device, work with it at the remote host, detach the device and plug in another one, and it will automatically appear at the remote client side.

Michael R. Is a connection over the Internet possible too?

In my idea I would like to have access to the webcam of a computer of mine, which is outside my LAN-Access.

It also would be great to have a computer waked-up from outside too. But this is another story, or can your program help with this too?

Julia Rixon @ Michael R.:

Yes, USB to Ethernet Connector easily connects one or more remote USB devices to your computer over Ethernet (Internet/LAN/WAN) as if the device was plugged into your own machine.

There are many computers with Wake-on-LAN support, you don't need third-party software for it. Modern versions of Microsoft Windows integrate Wake-on-LAN functionality into the Device Manager.

Michael R. Thanks for the answers of my former questions...
Here are some more...

Can I use the server-software on all of my computer with 1 license?

Does it support USB 3?

Can I connect between two computers, one with x32 and the other x64? Can I connect between two computers, one XP and the other WIN7?

Can I use all USB-Devices, e.g. also USB-Monitors, Bluetooth-Devices, ...?

Having a Fritz!Box, is it possible to connect a USB-Device (e.g. my bluetooth-device) with it and so use Bluetooth with my laptop connected to the Fritz!Box? (I suppose not, because the client does not run on the Fritz!Box, right? But it would be possible when another PC is connected to the Fritz!Box too and the client is running on that, wouldn't it?)

Thanks a lot...

Julia Rixon @ Michael R.:

According to our license policy, the Licensee may install and use USB to Ethernet Connector on only one operating system.


Does it support USB 3?

USB 3.0 support will be added in the next version of USB to Ethernet Connector.


Can I connect between two computers, one with x32 and the other x64? Can I connect between two computers, one XP and the other WIN7?

Yes, you can.


Can I use all USB-Devices, e.g. also USB-Monitors, Bluetooth-Devices, ...?

Yes, but you should firstly test how it works with trial version of USB to Ethernet Connector.


Having a Fritz!Box, is it possible to connect a USB-Device (e.g. my bluetooth-device) with it and so use Bluetooth with my laptop connected to the Fritz!Box?

You can share USB devices connected to your PC, and you can connect to remote USB devices from your PC too. Both PCs have to see each other in the network (Internet/LAN/WAN).

Nelson Therrien You are telling us that it's usually $90 to be able to share 1 device at a time!!

And we can only install it on ONE computer... what does that mean? I need one licence on my computer to share one USB device AND another one on my remote computer to be able to connect to it? I hope not!

I was REALLY hesitating with the high price of the discount ($35.98), but if I can share only ONE device for that price, it's really too high! (not mentionning $90)

I can simply share my printer or a USB hard drive over my wireless network if I share it from my computer... without paying anything!

Julia Rixon @ Nelson Therrien:

USB to Ethernet Connector by Eltima is licensed according to the number of shared USB devices. Every server (the computer where you are going to share a device at) requires a separate license. Client modules of USB to Ethernet Connector are always FREE.

Note: USB to Ethernet Connector shares USB port. You can plug as many different devices as you want in it and share them one at a time. If you want to share 2 ports simultaneously, then you should purchase license to share 2 USB ports, etc.

Peter Dr Hello Connectors:

Can you share multiple devices with this program? If so, I suspect that they would al have to be hooked to the same computer.

Or, in the case that you have several devices you would wish to share in the network, will the licence allow installation on several computers?

Actually, how does this software differ from simply "sharing" the device on the network. Does it give each device a network IP address?

Thank you in advance for your interest.

We offer discount for USB to Ethernet Connector for 1 shared USB device with BitsDuJour. Nevertheless, there are other licenses available for purchase at our site http://www.eltima.com/pur...-ethernet/ : for 2, 10 or unlimited shared USB devices.
Each license allows to install and use the software on only one operating system.

All current clients of Eltima Software are eligible for getting the new major version of the purchased product with 50% Upgrade Discount (off the standard price specified on our website). Also, you can purchase Lifetime Upgrades Guarantee (which will cost you 30% of the order amount) while ordering software from our site. All information about our upgrade policy you can find here: http://wiki.eltima.com/po...olicy.html

Concerning your question about printer driver: shared USB device connects to your system as if it were connected physically. So you'll need drivers to use it on your computer. If this device does not work on Windows 7, then unfortunately it won't work via USB to Ethernet Connector too.

Peter Dr Hello Julia Rixon:

Thank you for your answers. Just to be sure that I understand: if I were to purchase licenses for 3 devices today, it would cost:

$35.98 for the first device
$159 for the next two devices
Total $194.98 for the three devices.
The lifetime upgrade would be an additional $58.49 (30% of the total price)?

Supposing that one of the old printers dies, Can I switch the licence over to (for example) an external USB hard-disk?

And, what is the difference between this program, and a shared device on the network. Do the devices shared by this program have their own local IP addresses (as do current network-enabled devices)?

Thank you again for your patience.

Tom Sinclair You can already share ANY device over a home network using Windows 7 O/S. HOW IS YOUR SOFTWARE DIFFERENT?
May 11 2012 at 8:35am Copy Link

DroidLuvr Above: Tom pretty much asked my question although his use of caps is unfortunate.

I currently have multiple USB external HDDs attached to one computer in my network and I can access them anywhere in my home network with a mapped drive.

I tested your software, but once device it is shared it is no longer accessible from the "server" machine sharing it. That seems like a "downstep" from a network share to me, so I'm really confused about the benefits here... I also was unable to connect to the drive I "test-shared" from another computer in my network even though I did change the firewall settings.

So, could you explain why your software would be a benefit to a home network, especially at the prices for multiple devices??

Thanks.

J S $129.95AUD less 60% $77.97AUD = $51.98 AUD (for AUD read Australian Dollars) for the discounted price!!!!! You really need to look at using a different much more favourable exchange rate as $1.00AUD is currently $1.003USD. (Perhaps You should try the Google Checkout service which is a more flexible ((allows for gift buying and different names)) version but similar to PayPal).

The Aussie Dollar is the 5th most traded currency in the world but Your exchange rate is ONLY charging a 44.46% premium, which in my humble opinion is outrageous.

BTW in your reply to Dr. Peter You say: "... Also, you can purchase Lifetime Upgrades Guarantee (which will cost you 30% of the order amount) while ordering software from our site. ..."

Does this Lifetime Upgrades Guarantee apply to purchases in the past, because I'm pretty sure i bought this program over a year ago (I'm not at my PC at present to check my records) but then/as now, the Bitsdujour "Secure order form" DOES NOT OFFER the Buyer any "Lifetime Upgrades Guarantee" option.

So if somebody today buys the discounted deal, how do they know that such an option exists unless they read every comment and reply?

USB to Ethernet Connector Single license for 1 shared USB device (port) allows you to share 1 USB device at a time. Nevertheless you are able to share printer, or USB drive, or webcam one after the other.


@ J S
Please contact our sales department at sales@eltima.com with your order ID and clear your question about purchasing Lifetime Upgrades Guarantee.

@ Tom Sinclair
With USB to Ethernet Connector you are able to share USB device not only over a home network, but over internet - so people from all over the world (or your office) can use it. Moreover, it allows you to plug USB devices in virtual machines and blade servers, or access USB device in remote desctop session.
BTW, there is Linux-Windows-Mac cross-connectivity available. You can share USB between Mac, Linux or Windows machines. You can find our more at http://www.eltima.com/pro...-ethernet/ .

J S A neat idea indeed and I'd like to ask the following:

Q1. So USB N.G. is currently at version 5.1, how long do you plan to develop version 5 before you introduce v6.x?

Q2. Is version 5.1 compatible with the soon to be released Windows 8?

Q3. Does the product require online activation (or the less stringent email activation)?

Q4. There is no mention in the BdJ POLiCY BOX so: Is the product licensed "per User" or "per PC" or "per USB device" or "does the buyer need a licensed copy at each end"or just what is the case?

Q5. Can the item be licensed in a name different to the buyers credit card, &, can it be bought as a gift?

Q6. is it ONLY for USB devices, or, memory cards in USB readers or e-sata devices and other items that can be read or shared across a network?

Sounds like a really useful idea,however if you are targeting household users - as per the Bitsdujour product description, even 50% OFF product upgrades is out of the question for many home users from what I've read in comments since 2009.

I notice that you do not offer a "Lifetime License"/"until the end of the products development life License" which includes all future major upgrades.

A growing number of Software developers on Bitsdujour (such as Outertech.com Cacheman & Linkman products, PCWinSoft 1AVCenter, ArtenScience's R10Cipher to name just a few) are offering buyer's an option to pay usually 50% extra of whatever the price is - be it on special or normal, to buy Lifetime License protection (future major upgrades at no further cost) as it gives benefits to both parties. For developers 1. it "locks in" customers to their product forever, & 2. it brings in immediate increased revenue over ongoing dribbles "if" the buyer decides they want to buy the upgrade. For the buyers it means only having to pay once for a (protected) lifetime of product use. SO I HOPE THAT YOU MAY CONSiDER SUCH AN OPTiON for this product.

Many thanks, J S

Julia Rixon Hello J S,

A1. It depends on many factors and it's hard to say when version 6.x will be released. However, we are working hard on updating and improving of our software products.

A2. Yes, it's compatible with Windows 8.

A3. To register USB Network Gate you just need to insert registration name and key (delivered to your email) in "Registration" window

A4. Licensing is based on the number of devices you can share, not the number of people using the shared device. E.g.: Single License for 1 shared USB device allows you to share only 1 device, though any number of people can connect to and utilize it. We offer Single License for 1 shared USB device during Bitsdujour promo.

A5. You can purchase license to a name different to the your credit card. Just use "Different billing address" option in our shopping cart

A6. All mentioned USB devices can be shared over the network. Full list of supported devices you can find here - http://wiki.eltima.com/us...ndows.html

Lifetime upgrade guarantee is available to the users and can be purchased while making orders via our site, but not with this highly discounted Bitsdujour promo offer.

Cliff Knight "USB Network Gate for Windows promises to revolutionize your use of USB resources such as printers, webcams, external hard drives, scanners, and more."

Promises are nice--does it actually do it?

Just kidding, however I have always been bemused by that sort of ad copy and would never use it.

This would be much better:

"USB Network Gate for Windows revolutionizes your use of USB resources such as printers, webcams, external hard drives, scanners, and more."

BTW: I plan on buying a license when it rolls around...

RichV Hi, Julia - thanks for your response. I'm now understanding that the USB device has to be directly connected to a running computer, right? If so, then it's not something I need. The USB DAC has audio-specific outputs, so I'd still need to run wiring from my computer to my audio setup. I was hoping I could have the computer in one room and the USB DAC at the location of the audio system, connected as USB to that remote computer.

To be able to use a USB device from any computer in your local network or over Internet you must download, install USB Network Gate on both computers:

- one on the server side that has a USB device physically attached to it;
- and the second one - on the client side, that is going to connect to a remote USB device, shared on the server side.

J S Thanks for a reply to my questions yesterday ( I couldn't get onto your site at the time of asking).

As I have previously indicated in yesterdays comments People will look elsewhere if they are not already "locked in" to a Lifetime License, so Julia if Your company allows an existing owner to upgrade for only 50% of the normal price then why can't some negotiated fee be worked out for buyer's of today's deal so that if they wish too they can upgrade their purchases to buy the Lifetime License option (which normally costs $26.99 extra per license)

I know for me the Lifetime License option is a deal breaker and it seems very harsh that Bitsdujour buyers will miss out, or have to buy today and then pay again tomorrow just to get the Lifetime License option.

Believe me when I say I KNOW that companies like Outertech.com, ArtenScience.com etc., offer their optional Lifetime License to/during Bitsdujour buyers during their promotions (as I was the person who originally sold them on the idea of offering such a deal) and - to my knowledge, they have not regretted having done so.

You already have my email address and I'm waiting (hopefully) for a reply either publicly here or privately.

Kindest regards, J S

JMJ Squared Hello Julia Rixon,

Per Eltima's KB: "Can I use USB device locally after I shared it?
Unfortunately, USB Network Gate does not allow multiple computers to access the same shared USB device simultaneously. According to our latest investigations, such multiaccess solution is technically impossible for a universal tool like ours.
So, when the certain device is shared, it's no longer available on the PC, on which it was shared.
Once the device is successfully unshared, you gain full control over the USB device on the Server PC."

Do I understand this correctly to mean:
1. Despite a USB device's being "networked", it will be available to only one "client computer" on the 'network' at a time? The USB device must then be manually "unshared" from, for example, Client-Computer-A and then manually "shared" with Client-Computer-B ?
2. If so, does purchasing multiple licenses permit simultaneous, or even sequential, access to the individual Client-Computers without the need to manualy share-and-unshare?

Specifically, please kindly advise whether the following is a viable scenario:
I have one desktop computer which will be the "Server" to which a USB printer is physically attached. I also have three laptop client- computers that I wish to be able to access said printer.
Questions:
1. If only one client at-a-time will access the "networked" printer, do I need multiple licenses?
2. Will I have to manually share/unshare each time I want a different client to have access to the printer?
3. If one of the clients relinquishes access, can another client then establish access WITHOUT Server having to unshare/share?
If the answers are in the negative, then:
4. Does Eltima have plans to permit simultaneous/sequential access and, if so, do those plans include allowing the "Server" to retain simultaneous/sequential access to the device?

Pardon the windy questions. I'm not too bright. :-(

Kind regards.

Ralph Bressler I have had problems networking my old XP and new 7 computers which seems to be a problem many have. I decided this program sounded as if it might solve the problem.

I installed the program on both computers, ran and configured it. Both computers show only local devices but no remote devices. Adding and finding remote devices results in a disable firewall message. I did that without any change.

Any comments or suggestions? I don't really need MORE aggregation in my life but LESS. If this program cannot be made to work quickly and without hassles, it is not for me.

Julia Rixon JMJ Squared,

1. When certain USB device is shared, it "disappears" from the server, becoming available for client connections.

Any client on the network can discover and connect to the shared device. However, only one client connection can be established with the shared USB device at a time.

The user attempting to establish another client connection will get a notification that the particular shared device is already in use and will see the IP-address of the currently connected client.

2. USB Network Gate is licensed according to the number or servers (for clarify, server is the computer whether the shared USB device is physically connected). The client installations are free and need not be registered.

Simultaneous access is not possible, regardless on the quantity and type of licenses you own. It's all about the technical limitations, essential for this class of software.

As far as I know, there are no similar software solutions on the market capable of sharing one USB device to multiple clients at the same time.


In regards to the second batch of your questions:

1. As I said above, the number of licenses you need depends on the number of server you are planning to have. Each server requires a separate license; on the client PCs you do not need to register the product - the clients are free.

2. No, there's no need to re-share the device. One client will disconnect, the other will connect; no additional configuration on the server is required.

3. Yes, when a client disconnect, the device remains shared and again available for client connections.

Since USB Network Gate is a network application, firewalls configuration is essential.

Julia Rixon J S,

Implementing new features we always maintain backward compatibility. USB 3.0 is a relatively new specification and a great deal of older PCs is equipped only with USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 ports. USB Network Gate is compatible with all of the mentioned USB specifications. The actual communication speeds will depend on the type of USB ports your PC has and the capabilities of your network - USB Network Gate will squeeze the maximum of both.

Julia Rixon Well, actually Windows does not allow you to share any USB device; its sharing capabilities are limited to printers, scanners and storage devices.

USB Network Gate allows sharing virtually any type of USB devices over any type of Ethernet network, including LAN, WAN, WLAN, VPN and Internet.

The basic list of supported types of USB devices is available here:
http://www.net-usb.com/su...d-devices/

USB Network Gate works on virtual machines and will come handy when you need to access a USB device from a virtual machine running in a virtualization environment that does not natively support USB ports passthrough.

This solution is also capable of sharing USB device over RDP. Thus you will have the ability to access any USB device attached locally to your thin client when working in remote desktop session on the terminal server.

Another thing to note is that USB Network Gate is a cross-platform tool. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux (both 32- and 64-bit editions), and these platforms can act as USB Network Gate servers/clients in any combination.

To learn more about the features of USB Network Gate download a free trial version, please visit our website:

1. The statistical data somewhat varies between the sources, but most place the market of Windows 98 between 0.05 and 0.20%. So, there doesn't seem to be that much people out there who would consider the compatiblity with these fairly obsolete platforms important.

2. As noted previously, USB Network Gate is cross-compatible: you can share USB devices not only between different versions of Windows, but across Windows / Linux / Mac OS X just as well. Although in this promo we are of course talking about the Windows version of the product.

EMIT is basically a streaming software. It is designed for a way different purpose and I don't think that comparing it with USB Network Gate would make sense.

Let me explain how USB Network Gate works on a simple example:

Say, you have PC1 with some USB devices connected to it (flash drive, webcam, card reader, etc.), and PC2, from where you'd like to have access to these devices. You install USB Network Gate on both PCs, share required USB devices on PC1 and connect to them from PC2. Once the connection is established, each USB device will appear on PC2 exactly as if it were connected to it locally.

Cooler I can somewhat understand the USB WebCam mentioned in introduction being useful, but...

@Rhytmic, game controller? What are the beneficts for using that remotely? After all, using game controller usually requires you to see the display, too.

About 3D printer... What about installing it as a network printer or just share it? Perhaps contacting device support could help you achieve this, unless they already told you that their device do not support that? In that case, I would like to know the manufacturer, so I can avoid their (bad) products!
Feb 17 2014 at 3:52pm Copy Link

Greg Newell @Rhytmic: Not sure about the controller or why you'd do that. If you've got a $5000 3D printer and you can't share it as a network printer you got ripped off.

That said, I've got I/O gear for wireless USB. It uses the wifi connection in my house and I can plug four USB devices into it and they can be accessed from any PC on the network (running the IO Gear software). I paid $65 for it.

I'm sure this is great software and it probably works. I just don't see the value. My original question was just that, asking a legitimate question. If the only answer is you can use it with a game controller and a 3D printer then the software is pretty much useless right?

PS: analogy of the electrical outlet at a remote location doesn't hold up. This software has to be installed on a PC on the network. Seems almost like you're protesting too much.

Rhythmic @Cooler, Everyone has his or her own use cases and I can't speak for them, but what I see as part of the value of this software is that it allows generic usage of USB devices over a network. This is not easy to accomplish at $0 or by the simple use of a USB equipped router (though there are some that would work similarly as this software).

I only brought up the example of the controller only because it's something I've tried to do in the past, where I've wanted to use my main system to play a game on my LED television (far from the main system). I can easily stream the video over with low latency, but have not been able to come up with a clean (or cheap) way to use my game controller to play a game like Skyrim on the television.

As for the 3D Printer, it doesn't use the Windows printer service so it's not as simple to share as a normal printer would be that used this service and contacting the 3D Printer's developer to include support sort of defeats the purpose of what this product should solve right now.

@Greg Newell, I'll give it to you that my electrical outlet analogy was flimsy, but only as much as the original analogy.

That said, if you do know a free way to use a USB game controller and my $500 3D printer 100+ feet away from my system then I'm all ears -- I wasn't being factious in my original comment and I genuinely would like to know before I invest in software like this.

To answer your other questions, there are more than game controllers or 3D printers that I would use this software for (i.e. USB bluetooth device paired with a sound system to use on a bluetooth deficient laptop), but I really can't speak for everyone else's use case. Though, I am sure that there is a lot of value in a small business and enterprise setting. I've already proposed the use of this software to a few of my clients as a way they can share card readers, PFT machines, Spirometry equipment, etc. among several systems in their respective offices.

I think one of the areas this BitsDuJour listing failed to describe properly is that this software lets you use USB devices remotely over the internet, which I'm sure has its limitations. This feature along with it's cross-platform (Mac OS and Linux) makes it a good value for me and for how I plan on using this software.

With all of this said, I'm going to break;

Julia Rixon @Greg Newell:

The principal difference between free tools you are referring to and USB Network Gate is in the access level. Most other solutions operate on a logical level, actually sharing a mounted partition of a flash drive or a hard disk drive.

A low-level sharing of USB ports, as in the case of USB Network Gate, is fundamentally different. A USB port (and a device attached to it) is completely redirected into a remote system and appears in it exactly as if it were plugged in locally.

With USB Network Gate you are not limited to printers and storage devices. Using this tool you can share virtually any type of USB devices, over a local network or the Internet, between Windows, Mac OS X and Linux systems.

Mike B Something that I've used this kind of software for before was to share USB license dongles. Put those things on a server, and now they can be shared (serially - this doesn't work around licensing limits) without having to pass around the dongle physically.

This is convenient and helps reduce the chance that an expensive-to-replace dongle gets lost.

I suppose this is a pretty special case scenario, but it worked nicely.

CFGuy Dear Eltima Software,
I am very excited to see a program such as this offered here on BDJ.
I have 4 computers that ate networked (wireless)- three running Windows 7, the fourth running Windows 8 (all are members of the same "homegroup", as well. I have an external USB hard drive attached to one of the networked Windows 7 PCs, that I basically store all of my data on (to share with the other networked computers). The networked USB drive is easily recognized and accessed by all of the Windows 7 computers on the network, but there is a constant problem with the Windows 8 networked PC. The networked USB drive always has a red "x" on it (on the Windows 8 PC) and when I click on it to try and access it, I receive the error message "am error occurred when trying to reconnect … the device name is already in use … the connection has not been restored". I have been very frustrated and not able to find a solution to this problem. Would the use of your program, "USB Network Gate for Windows", solve this problem for me?

Thanks,
cfguy

Jason Howard In the above description, this sounded too good to be true:

"Just plug any USB peripheral into your computer's USB port, and it will automatically appear to all computers on the network, even those using remote virtual desktops!"

Knowing the following prior to purchase/evaluation might be a time saver.

"Due to a number of technical limitations, multiple access is unfortunately not possible. Any number of clients can connect, but only one at a time."

Our software provides shared access to a USB device in the sense that it allows it to be used from multiple remote computers. Although, due to technical limitations, only one system is able to access the device at a time.

Jason Howard Can the server (with the USB device physically connected) and a client access the device at the same time, or does the server lose access to its connected device when the client connects to it?

Keith Norton When will Windows 10 be supported? Will that support be considered a minor or major upgrade? (Free vs paid?). The license purchasing seems to be based upon the number of USB devices to be accessed. Do I need to purchase a separate license for each computer on the network? For example, if I have five computers each with two USB devices to share, do I buy a single two USB license, 5 two USB licenses, or some number of 10 USB licenses?

It will be paid major upgrade with numerous new features and Windows 10 support.

USB Network Gate by Eltima is licensed according to the number of shared USB ports. Every computer running a server host module requires a separate license.
Client host installations are FREE.

If you have five computers each with two USB devices to share you should purchase 5 Single Licenses (2 shared USB devices).

Keith Norton I realize the Android version of USB network gate is not part of today's offer, but will the Android software communicate with USB devices connected to a Windows host?

K Bruns Hi,

unfortunately it is not possible to buy a "Single License (2 shared USB devices)" altogether with Lifetime Upgrade Guarantee.

(A lifetime upgrade guarantee can only be purchased when clicking on "Single License (1 shared USB device); Single License (10 shared USB device); Single License (unlimited USB devices) " )

Could you please check.
Thanks in advance

Richard Miles Let me make sure I understand the boundaries. Only one remote user can connect to a shared USB device on the server at a time. So my server may have 3 USB ports but share only one USB port to one remote user at a time?

If you purchase Single License (10 shared USB devices), you'll be able to share 3 USB ports.

Daryn Bogart @Julia Rixon ...... Richard can share up to 10 USB devices if he wants to pay $160. If he buys the single license at $35.98 he's restricted to 1 single USB device.

@Richard Miles ..... see http://usbip.sourceforge.net/ for an open source alternative

Richard Miles I understand licenses share 1 USB port on the host computer. How many clients can simultaneously connect to the host USB port?

Julia Rixon @Richard Miles Only 1 client can connect to the host USB port at a time.
