USB Network Gate permits to secure connections by enabling traffic encryption and authorization.
These options can be enabled in “Share USB device” window when you share a USB device:
1. Switch to “Share local USB devices” tab.
2. Select a USB device you want to be shared.
3. Click “Sharing options” button.
You can customize the following settings to secure connection:
Enable traffic encryption – All data, sent from or to the USB device, will be encoded. Note, that traffic encryption may slow down the communication speed.
Enable authorization – Password is set on the server side, and the same password should be entered on the client side in order to get access to the USB device data.
On Windows, connection encryption, authorization and traffic compression settings, as well as device description, cannot be changed on the go.
In Linux version, you can change traffic encryption and/or compression settings on the go for already shared devices. Just double-click in the corresponding field opposite the required shared device and configure them as needed.
