Once you have shared a USB device on the server side, you can connect to it from the client side. This section explains how to do this:


  1. Switch to the Remote USB devices tab. Shared USB devices are automatically detected by the client and are dynamically added to the list of available remote devices.
  2. Select the necessary device and click Connect.



As you can see on the screenshot, there is also a Connect once option available via the drop-down menu.

If you choose Connect, when the connection is broken (for instance, due to network problems), USB Network Gate will attempt to restore it automatically. Note that this does not apply to cases when a wrong password was entered on the client side, or when the connection was disabled on the server side.


With the Connect once option there will be no attempts to restore the current connection if it is broken for some reason.

If the device is protected by a password (see How to Secure Connection), it will be prompted.
