physical USB dongle with VMWare

Is there a way to configure a VMWare instane to see a software-specific dongle connected to the local server USB port?
Thanks!

is this VMware workstation, server, ESXi, vSphere, or ESX?  It makes a difference as some do not pass through USB devices.  You could also look at a networked USB hub that allows dongles to be accessed across the network.
