USB over Ethernet: Software comparison

It is hard to imagine our everyday life without the devices that use USB port for connection these days - printers, scanners, webcams, etc. As a rule, USB cables are usually required to connect such devices, which is great when the device you want to use is right here, by your computer. But what to do when you desperately need to utilize USB devices located in another office or at home, while you are at work or travelling? Buying a new appliance is hardly an option in many cases and can turn out to be quite expensive.

A much more efficient and less expensive solution is a special software that lets you share USB over Ethernet and access devices easily as if those devices were directly attached to your remote computer. This page will contain a comprehensive comparison of the most popular USB to Ethernet connectors software solutions that do a perfect job sharing USB over IP network.

One of such solutions is USB Network Gate, which seamlessly connects to a USB port over Ethernet. It provides the easiest way to share USB devices over network and access them from any remote part of the globe. The app allows accessing shared devices from multiple computers and lets you set password protection to control access to devices.
