FlexiHub can automatically detect what type of device is connected to a machine. The moment you attach it, the app will detect it and you will be able to share the devices of your choice - share webcam, smartphone, keyboard, mouse, share USB dongle, etc.
Virtual machines may not detect and redirect USB ports from the host OS, so accessing devices attached to them may become a problem. Unless you have a FlexiHub installed – it allows redirecting USB ports over Ethernet to a virtual environment and use them as if your virtual machine actually had them. FlexiHub supports VMware, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Hyper-V, Virtual PC and other virtualization software.
FlexiHub uses its own redirection server to share USB over Ethernet, this means no public IP address is necessarily required. Therefore, is your computer is not able to detect the computer with a shared device attached, you will still be able to connect to USB over Ethernet.
FlexiHub can compress your data during the transfer considerably reducing the traffic consumption and increasing the speed of interaction with other devices. You can set an optimal compression ratio depending on your needs right in the app.
FlexiHub uses 2048-bit SSL encryption, a secure protocol that provides an extra layer of protection to transfer your data. This means that when you share USB through Ethernet, your data will never be lost or accessed by a third-party.
If you do not want a local device to be accessed by remote computers in your network, lock it. It will not appear on the other side of the connection and nobody will
FlexiHub shares USB devices over LAN and Ethernet without USB drivers. You do not need to install them neither on your local machine nor on a remote PC.
