USB Network Gate overview

With USB Network Gate for Mac, you will no longer encounter any issues accessing your USB devices connected to remote computers. You can use them as if they were physically connected to your computer. All you need to do is install USB Network Gate for Mac on the computer to which the USB device is connected (server) and on the computer from which you want to use the device (client). USB Network Gate for Mac will take care of the rest. No additional equipment is required! You can even choose between Linux and Windows machines to act as clients and servers.

In addition to allowing you to access your USB devices via Ethernet, our application supports server and workstation virtualization. Specifically, it will allow you to access your USB devices from a virtual session. With USB Network Gate, you can easily use your USB devices from systems running in environments such as VMware Fusion, Parallels, VirtualBox, etc. A single license allows up to 10 USB devices that can be shared simultaneously on a single computer. SDK license allows you to integrate its useful functionality into your own software.

USB Network Gate is a fast way to run remote diagnostics of USB devices. Moreover, there is the option for Remote iPhone Sync and Android Remote Access using our USB accessing solution. For my work, this is a very necessary function.

Great software for sharing usb devices! I've been using it to share usb hard drives between the computers located in the different networks, and so far it worked like a charm. Client machines are not always Macs, but this software is cross-platform, which really helps.

Cannot get this to work with iLok dongles. Try VirtualHere instead. Works with all of the dongles i've tried. http://www.virtualhere.com and much better price.

Seems to be having trouble with 10.12. `ionodecache` is going nuts all of the time as per experiences from others with Eltima software. After removal things calm down...

Full disclosure: I requested a discount to purchase USB Network Gate in return for writing this review. However, I kept my review as objective as possible. USB Network Gate is an interesting and unique solution to many problems. In my particular case, I needed to have access to multiple hard drives across several mac and windows computers and also be able to share input devices among them. To use the same hard drives across multiple computers, I was using the traditional method of unplugging each drive from one computer and plugging it into another computer. This can work fine for occasionally doing so with small, portable hard drives that are powered by the same USB cable that transfers the data. However, this process can quickly get inconvenient and burdensome when it needs to be done several times a day, especially with desktop hard drives that also have a power supply cord. USB Network Gate provides a unique solution to this problem: It lets me leave all my hard drives connected to a single computer with USB Network Gate installed and easily access them from any other computer that also has USB Network Gate installed. So no more un-plugging, re-plugging and physically moving around the hard drives—saving a great amount time and effort. I found the app itself to be very straightforward to use: on the Host side, click on the "Share" button next to the device I want to share and on the Client side, click on the "Connect" button next to that same device. I tested USB Network Gate across the following operating systems: Host side || Client side (1) Mac Pro [OS X El Capitan 10.11.2] || Macbook Pro [OS X El Capitan 10.11.2] (2) Mac Pro [OS X El Capitan 10.11.2] || Lenovo Miix 2 PC [Windows 10] (3) Mac Pro [OS X El Capitan 10.11.2] || Windows 10 running on VMware on the same Mac ================================ Devices: 1. Samsung D3 Station 4TB USB 3.0 External Hard drive 2. PNY 256GB USB 3.0 Flash drive 3. Monoprice USB Mouse 4. Logitech G13 Gameboard I mainly needed to access the Samsung HD and the PNY Flash drive (which are connected to the Mac Pro) with the Macbook Pro and the Lenovo Miix 2 Windows PC. These connected quickly and without any issues. Both these drives appear on the Client computers as being directly connected to their respective USB ports, just as USB Network Gate promises. I have a spare Monoprice (generic) USB mouse connected to my Mac Pro just as a backup. Purely for testing purposes, I shared this mouse and connected to it with the Lenovo Miix 2 Windows PC. Once again, the connection was quick and the mouse worked smoothly without any hiccups. I have VMware running Windows 10 on my Macs to be able to run some windows-only software. I use Logitech's programmable G13 gameboard with application-specific custom shortcuts across both Mac and Windows. So when I launch VMware Windows 10 on the Mac, I usually need to manually unplug and replug this device so I can use it inside VMware Windows 10. Now with USB Network Gate, I can have this gameboard plugged in and just connect to it from within Windows 10 without having to physically mess around with the USB plug. This may not sound like a big deal, but not having to do this several times a day saves me from a lot of inconvenience. There is a lot of software out there with little support from their developers, and I am happy to report that USB Network Gate is an exception. During my testing, the developer responded quickly to all my concerns and helped me understand how this application works so I can get the most out of it. If you need a solution to share a USB device between 2 or more computers without having to physically unplug the device repeatedly, I highly suggest giving USB Network Gate a try. Pros: 1. Effortlessly works with many types of USB devices. 2. Easy to setup and use, even between different operating systems. 3. Connection is stable. 4. Excellent support from developer. Cons: 1. A bit expensive, but worth it in many cases. 2. Can be a bit tricky to identify between multiple, identical devices, but this can be solved by labeling the USB ports within USB Network Gate.

I don't see anything here that indicates it is compatible with El Capitan. Looks as though it has not been updated since 16 July 2014.

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.

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.
