USB for Remote Desktop: Share USB over RDP

USB Network Gate (USB for Remote Desktop) is aimed to provide you with the best solution for easy access to any local USB device from a remote desktop session. It is constantly improved to correspond with all innovations of a digital world.
Available for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android

Common problem

If you are often working with remote computers via RDP you are well aware that once you are in a remote session there is no way to use USB devices connected to your local computer.

How USB Network Gate solves it

Just install USB Network Gate at your local machine (where USB device is physically present) and at the remote one (which you are connecting to). Share USB device on your local machine and easily connect to it with USB Network Gate - an irreplaceable USB for Remote Desktop solution! Moreover, with USB Network Gate you can connect to any shared USB device, available over network.

USB Network Gate also allows you to set the client machine to find and connect to shared USB devices automatically, it all happens momentarily as if you plugged this device in a remote machine physically!

This solution also works great for thin clients. Using USB Network Gate you can share USB devices, plugged into local machine (thin client) and then access them from the remote desktop.

USB Network Gate offers exclusivity while working with USB devices even in a multi-user terminal servers environment. It lets you make a USB device accessible only to a specific user in an RDP session. Since version 7.0 USB Network Gate supports ICA protocol by Citrix.

USB Network Gate Linux version supports native RemoteFX USB Redirection (MS-RDPEUSB), thus you can redirect shared devices from your local Linux computer to a remote Windows client without installing USB Network Gate on the latter*. Then you can easily use your local USB devices as if they were connected to a remote computer.

*If shared USB devices are supported by RemoteFX USB Redirection. Otherwise you'll need to install USB Network Gate on Windows client.

Real-life experience

Q: What challenges made you search for this kind of software?

Aaron: I needed to use a USB barcode scanner over terminal services. I also need to run the program that receives the input data from this scanner on a remote server. This scheme is perfect when used locally, but when connecting to a TS server the scanner becomes unavailable.
Personal Background: Aaron Rodgers, a representative of MyNYWay LLC, describes why and how USB to Ethernet Connector became an essential link in his working process chain.

Industry: Equipment Wholesale

Aaron: It was amazing! I installed USB Network Gate on a local workstation with barcode scanner plugged in. Then I shared the scanner. I also connected to remote server via RDP and installed USB Network Gate there. And after that I could start using barcode scanner on a remote server right away!

Q: How did you benefit from using Eltima solution?

Aaron: This is absolutely benefitting software! I would have hardly solved the issue that fast without USB Network Gate.
