USB Device Servers

Recommended Posts

Good afternoon everyone

Been looking into different ways to control the obsy from the new remote warm room.
I am currently using teamviewer but was looking for a way to control everything directly (for better compatibility for streaming etc...).

I have come across these USB Device servers that enable you to connect to remote usb devices over the network.

Has anyone used these or had any experiance with them?

Thanks in advance

I personally believe that usb connectors are the flakiest piece of hardware that has been thrust upon us. If I could find another way round it I would.

That looks like it might indeed be very useful! The spec sheet says it supports devices via a hub too - interesting ?

What about the ascom remote model ? I am hoping device manufacturers start building the api in at device level now it's released and you can talk to them directly with software like ccdciel

I have looked at ascom remote and for most things this will work fine apart from accessing hardware directly or locally for obs streams etc...

I use the Silex units in observatories, they work well.  It reformats the USB traffic to TCP/IP, the USB devices can be seen anywhere on the network, but connected to only one PC at a time.
