Share USB Devices via LAN/Internet

Eltima released their latest USB to Ethernet Connector software, version 2.4. The Eltima solution makes it possible to connect to any USB device over a LAN or Internet connection. So how does Eltima get a USB device to work over Ethernet or LAN? In a nutshell their application intercepts USB port activity for the prepared (shared) device and redirects it via TCP/IP network to the remote site, where the protocol is handled appropriately. To make this theory a reality, the USB to Ethernet Connector 2.4 must be installed on both computers. Here is a diagram:

The software automatically detects the device upon connection so there is no down time, or re-boot to see a new device. Given the wide range of USB devices available on the market and the popularity of broadband internet connections this is a power solution to consider. I for one would love to install the USB to Ethernet Connector software along with a USB missile launcher to shoot at my international publishers – just for fun of course! With a click of a button I could shoot those missiles in Panama, Amsterdam, Indonesia and Hong Kong. The USB to Ethernet Connector software is free for trial download or $80 for a 2 computer license. Bulk licensing is also available.
