This latest Network Attached USB adapter is a powerful tool for adding any USB device onto a network. Once the USB device is on the network, any computer on the network can access the device as if it is a locally attached to the computer. The NAU essentially enables the installation of any USB device over a long distance via the existing network cable and allow any user on the network to access the USB device.
*Connecting to the USB device via the LAN is no different than attaching a USB device to the computer directly. Software and driver for the device may need to be installed on the workstation in order to gain access or control of the USB device installed over the network.
While any workstation on the same network can access the USB device over the network, only one workstation can have control of the USB device. The NAU adapter does not support simultaneous access to the USB device from more than one workstation. Utility is included with NAU adapter to allow user to disconnect the USB device for other users to gain access to the device. The NAU adapter can be configured as a print server that allows multiple workstations to share printer simultaneously.
