USB Network Gate permits to secure connections by enabling traffic encryption and authorization.


These options can be enabled in “Share USB device” window when you share a USB device:


  1. Switch to “Share local USB devices” tab.
  2. Select a USB device you want to be shared.
  3. Click “Sharing options” button.



You can customize the following settings to secure connection:


Enable traffic encryption – All data, sent from or to the USB device, will be encoded. Note, that traffic encryption may slow down the communication speed.

Enable authorization – Password is set on the server side, and the same password should be entered on the client side in order to get access to the USB device data.


Note: In Linux version, you can change traffic encryption and/or compression settings on the go for already shared devices. Just double-click in the corresponding field opposite the required shared device and configure them as needed.
