I bought the software when it was in deal and I found it very interesting and ingenious.
Too bad that the crazy cost of licensing makes this software useless. I ask myself which company or which private user might think to spend $90 for sharing 1 usb device on a single workstation with the choice of a single operating system, all this without even lifetime updates!
When I saw that sharing unlimited usb devices on a single pc with a single operating system without lifetime upgrades costs $700 I said to myself: at the head of their sales office there must be Mr. Scrooge.
In conclusion: very nice software, but absurd prices of licenses.

First I thought this "USB Network Gate" could be promising but after reading about the licensing-politics I absolutely have to agree with
mmiglio's words. 90 bucks for one device? (And I'm allowed to plug it twice a day?).
Even for a MU Promo discount price Eltima's licensing-model is - pardon me - ludicrous. (And with the next upgrade we have to nail the licenses on our foreheads?).

For a purpose like this I prefer a hardware solution - e.g. a Silex USB Device Server. Of course introductory costs may be (just a little bit) higher but every USB-device works properly, even several hub-equipped USB-gadgets do - all together and with the same "license".

Solution I've been waiting for. No need to run over the office with my USB dongles over and over again.

USD 90 seems a bit inflated, but I really can't judge just how much good work has gone into this.

But can't you achieve the same functionality by simply using ShareTool?

Looked at this, thought "Nice; excellent idea". Then I looked at the price and found myself flat on my arse, having fallen off my chair. Perfectly willing to pay a reasonable price for something like this, but a hair short of $90.00 is just excessive, IMHO.

Agreed! For less money you can have access to not only a remote USB, but you entire computer plus anything that is plugged into it via any interface. Nice idea, bad financial approach.

yeah, I would want this, but for that price I would rather hire a butler to fetch me my peripherals
