USB Redirector

Share USB devices remotely

USB redirection is a method through which remote users can access USB devices without installing drivers or having hardware interfaces available on their computers. USB traffic is redirected from a centralized server that has the necessary drivers installed to interact with the associated devices. Network-attached users can then connect to the peripheral equipment and make use of its full functionality.

USB Redirector helps with

  • The core function of USB Redirector is to make every USB peripheral accessible from your virtual machine over network, plus the ones directly connected to a local host. With this app, for all your upcoming VM sessions, you won't ever have to deal with limited USB connectivity issues.

  • FlexiHub is a simple and effective way to redirect USB devices to a remote desktop. By contrast with some similar software tools, FlexiHub has a catch-all interface with no distinguished server-side and client-side apps. You’ll be presented with a list comprising each and every USB device you can forward to your RDP session.

  • USB Redirector is a solution suitable for any organization that wishes to make better use of its USB-compatible peripheral equipment. Devices such as printers, scanners, and external drives can be shared with users in the same office or located on the other side of the world. All that is needed is FlexiHub and an IP network to add value and functionality to expensive equipment and the users who share it.

  • USB redirection technology works with virtually all USB devices and supports all popular operating systems. There are versions of the software available for Windows, Linux, and macOS. It offers the flexibility of cross-platform support with any supported OS able to act as a server with which to share devices with clients of the same or different operating systems.

Private Redirection Server

FlexiHub is a type of USB redirector that can establish connection via its own Redirection Server, i.e. computers participating in the connection will be able to detect each other even without a public IP address to share and access devices remotely.

Secure Connection

For establishing communication and redirecting USB data, FlexiHub uses the 2048-bit SSL encryption. This ensures that no third party gets an unauthorized access to your private information and sensitive data.

Lock Devices

You can regulate access to your USB devices, e.g. if you don't want to use USB redirector with a device, you can lock it. No remote computers in the network will "see" it.

Detect Devices Automatically

FlexiHub detects the type and displays info about the connected devices automatically. This makes it easier for you to identify what device USB Redirector will share, access or, on the contrary, lock the access.

Compress Data

Compressing data helps with USB redirection, as it is transmitted at a higher rate and decreases Internet traffic consumption. There are different compression options you can choose from.

Create login Tokens

Redirection software allows you to create login tokens so that other users could use your account to connect their USB devices over IP. The tokens are a safe way of sharing an account with others without the risk of exposing your login credentials.

How to setup USB Redirector

Use the following simple steps to begin sharing USB devices with remote users over a network:
1
Register for your FlexiHub account from the website or from within the application.
2
Install on the computer that is directly connected to the peripheral USB device that you want to share with your users over a network.
3
Open the application on the machine that will act as the server and has the USB device physically connected. Log into FlexiHub with the e-mail and password obtained during registration. Select the device you want to share from within the app.
4
On the client machine, log into FlexiHub with the same credentials as those used on the server. Locate the USB device with which you wish to connect and press the "Connect" button.
5
You now have the same access to the USB device as does the computer that has the direct physical connection, even if your computer is located on another continent.
6
The USB redirection software only requires minimal setup and configuration to enable you to redirect USB data transmission across your network.
