Question:

I recently purchased and returned a Belkin product that claimed to do the same thing your product does. However, only one PC at a time could be "connected" to the external drives or the printer. Each PC had to "request" access from the PC that was currently connected to that device before it could use it. This required that someone physically had to release the connection at the second PC when requested by the first PC (or visa versa). Does your solution allow multiple simultaneous connections to USB devices or does it work the same way that the Belkin device does?


Answer:

The device server will establish a 1:1 connection with your devices, which will lock the device so that it cannot be simultaneously accessed by other devices on the network> However there is a timeout feature that if the device is unused for a specific amount of time (default is 10 minutes) it will be released and can be used by anyone. You can adjust the automatic disconnection time throught the Web browser controls or a TELNET session.
