"Access remote USB devices over Network"
USB over Network Connector for Mac is an app that lets users treat USB-connected devices as if they were network connected. By this we mean that the USB device that is plugged in can then be accessed as part of a network, with other users then able to use the device as well. USB port activity is redirected to transmit over a TCP/IP network to facilitate this networking process. In this way, a USB-connected external portable drive can be turned into one that can be access by other users on the same LAN even though the hard drive is not technically a network-able device. Extremely handy piece of software for users who need to share access.
