Simultaneous access to USB devices


I see in various posts here in this Support section that a USB device cannot be shared by two computers simultaneously and that this is a limitation of how USB works.
However, I was looking for a solution to share our USB dongles and I came across this:
This claims that their solution allows simultaneous access for certain devices (HASP, CodeMeter, etc).
I don't like their pricing though, need to give my payment details before I can start a trial and I cannot run this on a Synology NAS so would need to keep a computer running 24/7 then as well...

Is there any chance that you can look into bringing such a solution into VirtualHere as well?
Please note, I am a very happy (paying) customer using VirtualHere for years already and referred it to various of my clients who bought it as well.
If this feature could/would be added then that would make it even perfecter ;-), and I wouldn't mind paying extra for it...

Best Regards,


No actually its not possible to use simultaneously.

Thats why software protection dongles use the USB protocol because its not possible to duplicate the USB protocol, and anyway i wouldn't support it even if it was possible because its not right.

I took a look at that website, and they are just eltima which is one of my competitors which have a way more expensive and worse product. They dont have any magic ingredients they are just a USB over IP product as well, and they are rebranding it to different segments
