VirtualHere allows USB devices to be used remotely over a network just as if they were locally connected!
Traditionally USB devices needed to be plugged directly into your computer to be used. With VirtualHere this is no longer required, the network itself becomes the cable transmitting USB signals (also known as USB over IP, USB/IP, USB over WiFi, USB over Ethernet).
This USB device server solution is perfect for sharing USB devices among multiple users on the network, over the Internet, or in the Cloud without the USB device needing to be physically attached to each user machine. The shared USB device appears as if it was directly attached even though it is plugged in to a remote server, therefore all existing drivers and software work, no special changes required.
The VirtualHere software is commercial quality is used by multiple OEMs and was primarily designed to be extremely easy to setup and use and allows easy OEM integration. It is composed of two parts:
The VirtualHere USB Server software runs on the Synology, QNAP, ASUSTOR, ReadyNAS, as well as Raspberry Pi, AMD64, x86 MIPS/ARM etc running ANY version of Linux, and now runs on OSX, Android and Windows. Also, coming soon to the Steam Link game system!
The VirtualHere USB Client software is very intuitive and requires no installation and runs on each end user machine or cloud instance, for Windows, OSX and Linux
