Access local USB or Serial devices over network


toolsDesktop Connection allows users to be able to access their USB local drives and USB printers over RDC, however does not provide the capability for other USB or serial devices.  This basically means that virtually any USB device (a USB dongle, a webcam, a joystick, a robotic arm – anything) can be redirected and be ‘seen’ by the server as if the device were connected physically to the server machine.  Fabulatech offers software that allows this (other USB/serial devices and more), supporting USB, sound, webcam, and serial port.

A Contest is currently in progress to find creative ways of how users put this technology to use.  Learn more

Fabulatech’s Products

USB for Remote Desktop
USB for Remote Desktop allows you to work with USB devices at Terminal Server, while they are connected to your local workstation.  The devices appear as if they were plugged directly to the Server.

Sound over RDP

Sound over RDP allows you to work with sound devices at Terminal Server, while they are connected to your local workstation.  The devices appear as if they were plugged directly to the Server.

Webcam for Remote Desktop

Webcam for Remote Desktop allows you to work with video devices at the server side, whereas they are connected to the workstation.  Webcams appear at the remote session as if they are plugged in directly to the server side.

Printer for Remote Desktop

Printer for Remote Desktop allows you to work with printers at Terminal Server, while they are connected to your local workstation.

USB over Network

USB over Network allows you to work with the remote USB devices over a local network or Internet as if they were connected directly to your local PC.  It’s very convenient when you have to share some USB devices among several users.

USB Monitor Pro

USB Monitor Pro is an effective and simple in use analyzer of USB traffic for Windows. It allows monitor incoming and outgoing data of a USB device plugged into the computer.  USB Monitor Pro is a complete software solution, so you don’t need any additional expensive hardware.  It’s an indispensable tool for a developer of firmware and drivers for USB devices, expanding developer’s arsenal.

Virtual Serial Port Kit

Virtual Serial Port Kit creates virtual serial ports and connects each pair of them via a virtual null-modem cable. All the data written to one virtual serial port can be immediately read from the other one, and vice versa.  So, your applications can exchange data just like they do via hardware serial ports and real null-modem cables.

Network Serial Port Kit

Network Serial Port Kit allows you to share any serial port devices (bar code scanners, modems, sensors, telephone PBX systems, laboratory or industrial instruments, and so on) over the TCP/IP network or Internet.  There is also a possibility to emulate a null-modem cable over your local network or Internet. In other words you can create any number of virtual serial ports on your PC which will be connected over TCP/IP network to another PC via a virtual null-modem cable.

Serial Port Redirector

Serial Port Redirector allows creating virtual serial ports assigned to IP addresses and TCP-ports. Any serial communications software can use the created virtual COM port like a typical hardware COM port, to send/receive serial data to/from assigned TCP/IP address and port.  Serial Port Redirector allows connecting over local network or Internet any PC applications directly with the network enabled serial devices or other serial communications software.

Serial Port Splitter

Serial Port Splitter allows you to share one serial port among several applications simultaneously.  It creates virtual COM ports that are the exact copies of the specified physical COM port. Now, any program can work with its own virtual COM port not hindering other programs.

Serial Port Mapper

Serial Port Mapper allows mapping any serial port to any new port name. In other words, it allows creating aliases for serial ports.  For example, there is COM7 port but your favorite software can work with COM1…COM4 ports only. You can assign COM2 alias for COM7 port. You software can open COM2 port but actually COM7 port will be opened.

Virtual Modem

Virtual Modem allows any modem communications applications to interact via LAN or the Internet. Application “dials” remote IP address instead of making a dial-direct call using hardware modem.  Moreover, it looks as if the application worked with hardware modem. But in fact, a hardware modem is not used.
