We have a  2012 R2 Hyper-V node, where we wan't to address a USB port for one of our VMs. It's a USB dongle for a license server. Is it possible somehow?

We use the following hardware/network devices

Anywhere USB

or, sometimes we use a software solution called

USB over Network
http://www.fabulatech.com/

Both work very well.
