We are VMware, VMware ESX, Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft Hyper-V compatible!

Access USB over RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol)

The common problem you may face when using Remote Desktop Connection is that you are unable to access local USB devices. USB Network Gate allows you to work with any local USB devices in a remote session. Moreover you can set your remote machine to automatically detect and connect to shared USB devices momentarily, as if you just plugged the device in a remote machine physically.
