Are you looking for a program that gives you USB sharing at a reasonable price? USB Network Gate for Windows is a powerful software tool that enables you to share any USB device, for example, printers, scanners, webcams, USB speakers, and more as if they were connected to your own computer. These devices can be accessed either over a local network or from the internet. In order to achieve this, USB Network Gate attaches your devices to a virtual machine, which gives you this flexibility.

All you have to do is download, install and configure USB Network Gate onto your computer, and in just a few simple steps, all the devices, which may physically be located miles away, become accessible through your device manager. To put it simply, remote or client computers can connect to your computer and communicate with your shared remote ports. It is as if these USB devices are connected directly to the client computers. It does not need extensive configuration and works immediately.

The program comes with an easy to use interface with clear tabs and labeling to make it easy to learn. There are useful features, such as the ability to enable encryption, password authorization, or traffic compression. One of the impressive elements of this software is that whilst you get to share the USB devices, it is actually the USB ports that are being shared. This means that you can plug any USB into the port and it will automatically appear at your remote client site without having to change any configuration. So you are not limited to the USB devices and can switch them in and out as you need. What's more, you are not limited to the number of devices that can be added in this way.

Another useful function is that you can change the name of the device, customizing your device so that the client can more easily identify it. For example, this can help if you have a number of printers that have different functions. You are also able to have any number of clients who can connect and make use of these remote USB devices.

USB Network Gate is a fantastic tool, with great functionality and easy to use. Once it is installed, you will wonder how you managed without it.
