USB to Ethernet Connector lets you connect to any USB device located on a remote PC on a local network or the Internet. You will be able to work with it as with a local USB device and applications working with it won’t even see the difference. USB to Ethernet Connector works with a USB driver at the system level. It intercepts USB port activity for the shared device and redirects it via TCP/IP to a remote site, where it is handled appropriately.
It helps you share a USB device over network among multiple computers so people from all over the world (or your office) can use it. USB to Ethernet Connector lets you access your printer, scanner, web-cam, USB dongle or any other supported USB device from your home PC, office laptop or anywhere any time! Just plug the device in and it will automatically appear on the remote side of the connection.
To achieve such functionality, USB to Ethernet Connector is installed on both computers that take part in the communication process. Therefore, USB to Ethernet uses client-server architecture – server side has the USB device physically attached to it, while client side connects to remote server and uses the services it provides, but each side can be a client and a server at the same time. USB to Ethernet Connector shares USB ports rather than devices.
The benefit of this approach is that you may plug in a USB device, connect to it from the remote host, detach the device and plug in another one, and it will automatically appear at the client side. Among its key-features are an unlimited number of USB devices that can be shared, auto-connecting to new USB devices whenever you plug them in and working with virtual machines.
The software is compatible with Windows XP/2000/Vista and Win 7.
