FlexiHub 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.
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.
How to setup USB redirector
FlexiHub only requires minimal setup and configuration to enable you to redirect USB data transmission across your network. Here’s a quick step-by-step guide on how to use this USB redirector.
- Install FlexiHub on the computer that is directly connected to the peripheral USB device that you want to share with your users over a network.
- FlexiHub also needs to be installed on all of the machines that will be remotely accessing the shared device.
- Once all software installations are complete and a device has been shared from the server, it’s quite simple to connect to it from the client computers. Just fire up the app and select a device from the list of available shared devices.
At this point, you have the same access to the device as if you were directly connected to it no matter where on the network it is physically located.
Data security is critically important and FlexiHub has you covered in this regard. It employs advanced encryption techniques and establishes secure connections that can be used to transfer sensitive data safely.
Access to specific devices can be controlled through the software and you can lock down a peripheral so that no networked user can connect to it. Password protection enables you to decide who can use your devices.
Devices are automatically detected by FlexiHub when they are connected to a USB port on your computer. It facilitates the sharing process by displaying the device type. This way you can see if there are printers, scanners or drives available to be shared from your client machine and makes it easier to find the device you need.
Before you can do all of this you need to download the application to the necessary server and client computers. You also need to obtain a FlexiHub account. Then there are a few simple steps to be done within the app and you will be ready to go.
