USB Network Gate Product Page

USB Network Gate for macOS has the following known issues:

  • Why can't I connect to remote USB devices from my M1 Mac with macOS 11?

On M1-based Macs with macOS 11 Big Sur, USB Network Gate can only function in the server mode.

The software allows making local USB devices accessible to remote computers. Currently, it doesn't allow establishing connections to remote devices.

Please follow the changelog for any updates.

  • Why am I experiencing issues with the audio/video USB devices?

The current version of USB Network Gate for macOS does have some issues with the USB devices that work in isochronous transfer mode.

Some examples of isochronous USB devices include web cameras and USB audio headsets.

Please follow the changelog for any changes or contact us directly to find out whether your device is compatible with USB Network Gate for macOS.

  • I get “Administrator of this Mac disabled your user account from accessing USB Network Gate”message once I start the GUI…

    Please remember that the current user should be a member of the “staff” group.

    To check if the user belongs to the “staff” group, launch the Terminal app and execute:

dscl . -read /groups/staff | grep GroupMembership

        To add a user to the “staff” group, run:

sudo dscl . -append /groups/staff GroupMembership <user>

        replacing with the numeric user ID or the account name.

  • Why do I get the “System Extension Blocked” message?

        Since the macOS High Sierra 10.13 introduction, all newly-installed third-party kernel extensions (KEXTs) require manual user approval before loading. When a request is made to load a KEXT that the user has not yet approved, the          load request is denied and macOS presents the alert.

        As USB Network Gate for macOS contains a number of KEXTs, a manual approval is a required condition for the proper functioning of the app.

        To approve the KEXTs used by USB Network Gate for macOS, please go to System Preferences → Security & Privacy and click the “Allow” button.
