USB server is a solution to the problem of sharing USB devices between network connected computers. It enables peripheral devices such as scanners and printers to be accessed by multiple network-attached machines without the need to physically swap cables.

Using a USB server:

In most cases, a USB server is physically attached to a network using standard ports for connectivity. The devices provide one or several USB ports that are used to connect peripheral equipment. Once connected, these devices can be accessed by any machine that is on the same network. The majority of USB servers include a web interface to facilitate management of the system and may have specialized software installed to assist with the system’s configuration.
