How to share USB tuner over network:
Question: What made you start searching for this kind of software? Did you face any difficulties?
Jason: I have an Epson Stylus Rx700 multifunction printer which does not offer network support. I have tried so many hardware print servers to connect my printer to the network, but have only succeeded in making the printing side of things work. I needed something to make that printer work as it has to.
Question: For what purposes are you using USB to Ethernet Connector now?
Jason: I am currently using USB Network Gate on my laptop running Windows Vista Ultimate and my Epson Rx700 MFP connected to my server with Windows Server 2003. I also have two other laptops with Windows XP on the network that are sometimes used by my wife and son. All these laptops work as if they have the printer plugged into them.
Question: Was USB Network Gate of any benefit to you?
Jason: USB Network Gate is a pleasure to use. It is rather beneficial to me and my family as we can all use the printer, scanner, and photo functions. Thanks a ton for developing such a useful piece of software.
