    Thought to test Hyper-V Server 2012 R2. What I'm wondering is if there is any software that I can use to share usb port over the network?

    I know there is software that you can buy, but quite expensive for a home user. So maybe there is some software that are free or that you can get started in any other way =)

    I need to be able to share 6 usb ports.

    Otherwise, I get to try a
    [h=1]USB 2.0 to Ethernet Network Server Adapter with 4-Port HUB RJ45 Port[/h]

    The device you're talking about has nothing to do with Hyper-V Server and would function independently on the network.

    If you are wanting to share the host's USB ports amongst the virtual machines, that's an entirely different concept.

    Now I understand. Two different ways but both works I think?

    tested sysnucleus in win 8.1 x64 and x86 but does not seem to work. becomes something wrong when I will try to share a ir receiver.

    Is no other program that has the same price? that might work?

    I tested SN with USB dongle (required for licenced software in VM). Server part running on W2K8R2. Had no issues. Might want to ask their support.
