AnyplaceUSB lets you access any USB device (printer, scanner, flash drive, human interface device, etc) that is located on a remote PC over LAN/WAN/VLAN/VPN or Internet and use this device as if it were plugged to your local PC. All applications that work with the device won't see the difference and will treat it as a local one.
Additionally, there is no limit on the number of USB devices you may connect to, using AnyplaceUSB. Once USB device is connected you don't need to launch our application every time to be able to work with the device - it will be present at the system level at the boot time.
Share USB port over LAN/WAN/VLAN/VPN/Internet
To share a USB device between two or more PCs you have to move it around all the time or buy an expensive hardware USB switch (not the best solution if both computers are far from each other). Whenever you want to share any USB device over local area network or even across Internet and none of the traditional options work (extensive equipment, remote location, security issues and so on), AnyplaceUSB will help you out.
Access USB devices over Wi-Fi
There's no need to change your existing network configuration to let your employees share a new USB device - it can be accessed wirelessly from desktops and laptops in your office. All you have to do is share a USB printer, scanner or other device on a single PC, and each of your network users will be able to work with a shared device as if it were connected to their computers.
