You may be aware of the fact that you can use a dongle copy to share a USB dongle over a network. This enables multiple computers to access the information contained within the dongle simultaneously. Not all hardware keys are designed to allow this type of network licensing. They are meant to be used by an individual computer. To use these types of dongles with several machines requires you to employ third-party software tools to copy a USB key dongle.
Another situation that you may face is attempting to access a USB dongle that is connected to a physical host from within a virtual machine. In this case, you will need to copy the USB dongle and redirect it to your virtual environments such as VMware or VirtualBox.
Note, there should be the “Multi-connect” or “Single-connect” icon next to a USB dongle you are going to copy. The first one means you can copy USB key dongle and it will be accessible to several remote machines simultaneously. “Single-connect” means your dongle key copy will be available for use on only one machine at a time.
This is it! Now, a virtual copy of the USB key will appear in the remote system as though the real device were connected to that computer physically.
It really is that simple to access USB security dongles from anywhere on your network when using Donglify to copy a USB key.
