To use a USB device from any computer in the local network, download, install, and configure USBoNET on both computers:

Definitions:

  • Server: The machine sharing the USB device.
  • Client: The machine connecting to the remote device.

To provide shared access to the USB device on the server side:

In the application, choose to continue in trial mode (free key available for the first year).
Within the Devices tab, you have a comprehensive view of all presently connected devices within the system. Customize each device to your preferences by simply clicking on the gear icon associated with each.
After configuring settings, click “Allow Access” to share the device over the network.

Note: The port for connecting to the machine is 55660.

To connect to the device from a client system outside the local network:

Launch the program on the client machine. Navigate to the “Remote ports” tab on the left side of the interface. Click on it, and you will be prompted to either add a port or add a server. Choose the “add server” option. In the ensuing window, input the IP address of the server machine where your USB devices are connected.
Proceed as with the machine in the local network: If a password was set on the server system, click the gear icon and enter the password; if not, simply click “Connect,” and the device is now connected to your system.
