Hello. I want to use an Ethernet to USB device to connect a Phone remotely to a PC elsewhere on our network. (I’m thinking of using an Anywhere USB or the like. The problem is that this is a phone test application and we will be switching several different phones / hour onto the same USB line (one at a time)

My question is: Can an Ethernet to USB device like this cope with devices being remove and re-connected to a single USB port like this?

Thanks in advance

    Makes sence. Is sounds like the PC sees the remote USB as just another USB.
