If you are wondering if it’s possible to access your USB peripherals remotely, the answer is yes. You can easily connect to an external hard drive, scanner, webcam, or even a security dongle from a remote computer with the help of TeamViewer or by using a dedicated software called FlexiHub.
It’s hard to imagine a solution that can share USB devices faster and more securely than FlexiHub - a software application designed precisely for this purpose.
What makes Remote USB efficient is the USB port redirection technology it uses. Thanks to this advanced technology, the app can work with USB devices of virtually any type and over any distance.
This is it! The connected remote device will appear in the Device Manager of the client computer as though it were physically attached to that machine.
What’s also nice is that FlexiHub works on Windows, Linux, Android, and macOS, so you can easily create cross-platform connections and share devices even more efficiently.
If you choose to use TeamViewer to share a USB device, you first need to remember that you should connect all of your computers to the same network.
The other requirement is to install the software on all systems that will take part in the connection. These include remote systems you want to control and the master station from which you will manage the remote machines.
Now, let’s select a device for sharing. It should be mentioned that most often users try to remotely connect to storage devices with TeamViewer, as it may be inconvenient to constantly unplug your USB flash drives or external hard drives to connect them to another computer.
Of course, you can use a wireless hard drive but this doesn’t seem to be the optimal solution if you are using a good-old USB-connected external drive. For that, you can use a program like TeamViewer to help access remote USB devices with just a few mouse clicks.
As a result, you’ll see how simple it is to use TeamViewer with USB redirector capabilities to make remote USB devices accessible over the network. What’s more, by running TeamViewer on a laptop or a tablet, you get even more options to control your remote USB devices from any place in your house.
