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.
