USB Network Gate for macOS has the following known issues:

  • I get “Administrator of this Mac disabled your user account from accessing USB Network Gate”message once I start the GUI…

    Please remember that the current user should be a member of the “staff” group.

    To check if the user belongs to the “staff” group, launch the Terminal app and execute:

dscl . -read /groups/staff | grep GroupMembership


        To add a user to the “staff” group, run:


sudo dscl . -append /groups/staff GroupMembership <user>


        replacing with the numeric user ID or the account name.


  • Why do I get the “System Extension Blocked” message?

        Since the macOS High Sierra 10.13 introduction, all newly-installed third-party kernel extensions (KEXTs) require manual user approval before loading. When a request is made to load a KEXT that the user has not yet approved, the          load request is denied and macOS presents the alert.



        As USB Network Gate for macOS contains a number of KEXTs, a manual approval is a required condition for the proper functioning of the app.


        To approve the KEXTs used by USB Network Gate for macOS, please go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and click the “Allow” button.
