Have you ever left a USB device in your home machine and needed it at work? Maybe you've got a certain device you want to use but you're out of free ports? There's a way around both problems. USB Network Gate allows you to tell your PC or laptop that a USB device plugged in elsewhere is actually plugged into that machine using the internet. This kind of problem-solving makes a program really worthwhile, especially with a free trial.
USB Network Gate essentially connects a USB device to your machine over the internet LAN or WLAN. No matter how far away you are you can interact with a device plugged into another machine as if it were right there. This solves cross-platform compatibility issues and allows easy sharing for example letting any office PC use a printer connected to a certain machine. You can also isolate devices locking them to one user at a time. This software can let you operate as if you have unlimited USB ports or you could plug a gamepad into a laptop but tunnel it to the PC making it almost wireless.
USB Network Gate is useful but only for fairly specific scenarios. It's only worth the money if you have a problem in mind that needs solving. You can try it unregistered but device amounts are limited. The interface could be nicer but the software works very reliably.
