What USB Network Gate’s сustomers say
Redirecting USB to a virtual environment as a part of production automatization at YOLO S.A.
I represent YOLO S.A. operating in the consumer loan industry. Our mission is to build a new, better quality on the non-bank loans market.
Automatization of our production is one of the top priorities for our team. This involves bank accounts and transaction monitoring. When connecting to banks we need to use certificates stored on smart cards. They work fine when plugged to the server, but were causing us problems in the VM environment. Because of that, we weren’t able to virtualize all the servers. Thankfully, USB Network Gate solved that issue.
The installation required just 4 clicks, all configurations took another 2 clicks. It was that easy. With this software tool, we were able to virtualize our servers and automate bank integration. So far I have no problems and this is the only easy to use and stable solution to choose.
Sharing hardware USB keys among several machines
Ceron Digital Engineering is a systems integration company based in Hong Kong. The company specializes in hardware retailing, network engineering, developing software and web sites, and more.
Jon Cheng, the CTO at Ceron Digital Engineering:
Our Clients have different systems protected by the USB dongles. However, USB dongles are not fully supported by VM systems. Without a solid solution for USB dongles redirection, our project cannot progress.
With USB Network Gate by Electronic Team, Inc., I can fix all the dongle-related issues in the P2V Projects. The software has helped me share several USB security keys plugged into my local computer with virtual machines running on this PC. Once I select the right dongle and click share on the PC, my software system on the guest OS automatically connects to that shared dongle and it works immediately.
Since all of my virtual machines use USB dongles from the same manufacturer, to make sure the client in-house technician will not mix the key in the future, I add a description in the USB Network Gate server setting and force the dongle to connect only to the relevant IP address.
Using USB Network Gate for remote cell phone unlocking and repair
I’ve been working at the cell phone repair market for about 7 years. I do a lot of unlocking, flashing and reloading of the Android & iOS software back on the phone. Most of the phones I fix have software related problems.
The inability to troubleshoot customer cellphone from a remote location has become a big challenge for me, as I had a very bad experience with the Post office, getting my customers phone lost. I wanted to be able to unlock and repair my customer cellphones without having to ship the phone back and forth. USB Network Gate helped me solve this problem.
Using USB Network Gate is like having the remote phone on my desk plugged into my computer. The software lets me access any remote USB device with nothing more than a few clicks of a mouse.
Remote access saves my customers so much time and worries about when they will be getting their phone back. Thanks to this software they don’t have to worry about shipping costs or getting their phone lost at the post office.
USB connection over the network helps with software development and debugging
I was looking for a high-quality USB connection between my iPad, Nexus 4, Nokia Lumia and my Windows-based laptop with various operating systems running on virtual machines for testing, developing and debugging my own software.
I use it with Vmware ESXi and NoMachine virtual solutions. My laptop runs Windows 7, and virtual machines run different versions of Windows and Linux, Mac Mini works on 10.8. I use my laptop at the university and connect to other machines remotely over OpenVPN.
The software allows me to connect USB devices to my laptop and develop mobile applications in the native environment over NoMachine remote desktop.
That’s how it goes: iPad/Nexus → My laptop (Windows 7) → OpenVPN → USB Network Gate and NoMachine → ESXi or Mac Mini → native environment on virtual machines – OS or OS X.
USB Network Gate allows me to work with native environments from anywhere and develop custom applications for various platforms from my laptop with ease.
Remote synchronization of an iPhone with a home computer
I work as an IT manager and my office is located far from home. Lately, it’s become difficult to work without syncing my phone during the day. Some software I use doesn’t take advantage of Apple’s iCloud so it requires a USB sync. Seeing as how my computer is at minimum 60 miles from where I work during any given day this is not possible.
Once I discovered USB Network Gate I found a solution to my problem. USB Network Gate lets me sync my phone from my travel computer to my workstation at home. I no longer have to worry about leaving documents or media files behind by accident. This also saved me a huge nightmare when my phone needed to be swapped at an Apple store mid-day and nothing was on it. USB Network Gate is the only solution of this type that reliably syncs a device. I was even able to do a firmware upgrade over the remote USB connection without issue.
USB Network Gate saves me from having to put all my personal iPhone sync data on my travel laptop where it can be lost, or stolen.
