Editors' Review

+

USB Network Gate enforces widespread compatibility for USB devices across a network by intercepting USB port activity and redirecting it back to your host PC via TCP/IP. Any USB device configured for your PC will run on any networked PC, including removable drives, scanners, printers, keyboards, and specialized devices like test instruments.

Pros

Pro: USB Network Gate lets network admins and other IT pros configure devices once and use them on all networked PCs instead of scripting a systemwide fix or, worse, configuring them on each machine, one by one.

Flexible: We could display Devices or All Ports (including free ports) or show only shared devices.

Connection options: The Connect Devices menu can add servers, devices, and remote devices; connect with passwords and RDP Auto-connect; connect always or once; and disconnect all or individual devices.

Cons

Dull interface: USB Network Gate's plain list view groups devices by controller under tabs for local and shared network devices. It's a look only a network pro could love.

Pricey: Although it offers intriguing possibilities, USB Network Gate is a bit pricey for most home networks.

Bottom Line

USB Network Gate has the power to make life easier for network administrators or anyone who needs to access a variety of USB devices on networked PCs. While it's probably overkill for the typical home network, it could save real time (and money) in pro environments.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of USB Network Gate 6.2.680.

"Fast and Easy solution to what can be a big issue."

August 07, 2015  |  By CRJones3

 |  Version: USB Network Gate 6.2.680

Pros

Fast and easy to use.
Installation was straight forward with no errors or hiccups.
The software is extremely stable and "just works".
Support staff is extremely courteous and flexible working with their clients needs.

Cons

Licensing is limited to number of ports available and only available in packages sometimes outside of the necessary scope of need.

Summary

I would recommend using the software when in a pinch and/or when a quick and easy solution for USB redirection is required.
