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.
  2. Click Find on the main toolbar:The Add remote USB device dialog will be invoked:
  3. If you want to search for USB devices shared on a specific remote host, type in its IP address or network name and click Find. To find all shared USB devices available on your local network, use Find all.
  4. If the search in the previous step yielded no results, probably one of the required network ports on your server is blocked by a firewall. In this case, you can press the Add button on the toolbar and manually specify the TCP port on which your device is shared:
  5. After adding the device to the list, select it and press Connect or Connect once to establish a connection (see the beginning of this section for the differences between these options).

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