Keyspan launches USB Device Server

updated 02:35 am EST, Thu January 8, 2004

Keyspan USB Device Server

today launched its USB Device Server, which shares virtually USB device with networked computers: "Much like a USB print server, the USB Server enables attached USB devices to be used and shared by client PCs on a LAN. In addition to printers, the USB Server supports other USB devices such as hard drives, scanners, and more." The USB Device Server provides 4 ports for connecting to USB 1.1 devices and an Ethernet port for connecting to a network; it supports static IP, DHCP, and Apple's Rendezvous address assignment. Clients must be running Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher. It will ship in "late in the first quarter" for $130.

    I wonder how this will work. Will each vendor have to update there driver? What is the maximum amount of USB devices and servers? Does this effect the speed of USB devices? This sounds like a headache....
