Redirect USB over Network

USB Network Gate has the main goal of providing you with the way of connecting to remote USB devices over network. It doesn't matter whether you are using Wi-Fi, Internet, or LAN, you will still easily connect to any remote USB device and work with it just as if it was physically connected to your local computer.
Available for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android

Common problem

We use a lot of devices in modern offices, but not all of those devices can be redirected to other work places in the office. There may be one MFD, scanner, or else in the office and many employees need to use them through the day. Of course carrying heavy devices is not an option, especially if the office is spread among several floors or even several buildings.

How USB Network Gate solves it

USB Network Gate is a perfect USB redirector for those cases when you need to redirect USB devices to other computers on the network.

With our USB over Network solution you won't need to buy any additional hardware or restructure your network. You only need USB Network Gate on a computer with USB device physically attached and on a computer you will be redirecting device to. USB Network Gate will organize the connection and USB device will appear on a remote machine just as if it was physically plugged in to it!

Real-life usage of USB Network Gate

Q: 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.
Personal Background: Jason Gregory is a family man with a wife and three children. He works as a supervisor for a medium Manufacturing company which processes polyurethane.

Industry: personal usage

Q: 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.

Q: 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.

Media & Reviews

"I for one would love to install the USB to Ethernet Connector software along with a USB missile launcher to shoot at my international publishers - just for fun of course! With a click of a button I could shoot those missiles in Panama, Amsterdam, Indonesia and Hong Kong."
"...the best solution I could come up with was to use USB to Ethernet Connector to sync up my iPod with my home system to share to my laptop no matter where I was on the road. Giving me the best of both worlds. This is a truly an elegant solution."
