A while ago accessing a device inserted in a USB port of another computer was a complicated thing to do. However today’s technologies offer us various ways to reach the contents or functionality of a remote USB device, the most popular being Anywhere USB - a network attached USB hub.
Digi AnywhereUSB is a USB hub that allows you to connect to USB devices over a wired or wireless Local Area Network. USB Anywhere however does not support so-called isochronous devices, i.e. those that transfer time sensitive information such as audio (sound cards) and video (webcams). The biggest disappointment awaits Mac owners – USB Anywhere is available only for Windows.
