Traffic optimization

With the traffic compression option, you can drastically improve the transfer speed and bandwidth utilization. This option will be especially useful when sharing USB devices that tend to transfer uncompressed data.

Share USB over Wi-Fi network safely

USB over network software will make sure that no third party will gain access to your data traveling over Wi-Fi. Highly secured connection standards are provided by the traffic encryption option. Moreover, you can add a password to control remote user access. Share USB devices over Wi-Fi

Turn your computer into a USB server

There is no need to reboot your computer or restart USB Network Gate every time you need to share another device. Just unplug the currently shared USB device and plug in another one to the same USB port. A new device will automatically appear on the remote client.
USB in a virtual environment

USB Network Gate allows USB sharing and redirection from a host to a guest operating system. Shared on the host computer, USB devices can be easily accessed from virtual machines as if the peripherals were connected to those physically. The software fully supports VMware ESX/ESXi, Citrix XenDesktop, and Microsoft Hyper-V, and many other virtualization apps. Learn more
Forwarding USB over RDP

Connect to USB during an RDP session

USB Network Gate is an excellent solution for users who often connect to remote computers via the Remote Desktop Protocol. The program lets access any local USB device while working in a remote desktop session.

Support for Citrix ICA protocol

When the USB redirection cannot be done via Microsoft RDP, e.g. the client machines do not run Windows or ICA client software is built into a thin client, USB Network Gate will still be able to redirect a USB device with the help of fully supported Citrix ICA protocol.

RemoteFX USB Redirection support

If you need to forward USB devices from your local Linux machine to a remote Windows client, USB Network Gate will help you do this fast and safely. The software supports native RemoteFX USB redirection (MS-RDPEUSB). You won’t even need to install USB Network Gate on the remote Windows PC.

Isolation NEW

Complex Windows USB device isolation

Windows does not provide an efficient method of limiting the use of connected USB devices. The OS defaults to enabling any user on a Windows computer to access all of the USB devices connected to the machine. When a machine is hosting multiple RDP sessions or being shared by many users, this can be a problem. USB Network Gate is a software application that can solve this problem by allowing you to implement USB device isolation.

Illustration Isolation

Per-session isolation

Isolate a USB device by giving exclusive access to a specific Remote Desktop session. When using this option, you can make sure that a particular RDP session can always access the USB devices that it needs without worrying that another session is using the peripheral.

Per-user isolation

One option offered by the software is to isolate a specific USB device from other Windows accounts. This can be helpful when a shared machine is switching between multiple accounts but you want to limit the use of a peripheral to a single user.

Note: Extensive testing has been performed to ensure USB device isolation compatibility with removable drives, cameras, sound cards, and many other peripherals. USB Network Gate supports Windows 8 or later versions and any machine running Windows Server.
