Brief problem description

I downloaded USB over Network to solve a common problem on my home network. I treat my main PC as a server, it runs Windows Home Server with VMWare Server. I have several VMs running on top, one of those is RIM's new Unite! Server.

To sync a BlackBerry to the Unite! server, it has to be connected to a local USB port. VMWare will let me map the host USB to the guest OS but my server is in a box in my garage and I really want to sync it while connected to my laptop.

Solution

Remote synchronizing

This is where USB over Network comes in. I simply connect the BlackBerry to my laptop over USB, run the USB over Network client on the Unite! Server and the USB over Network Server on the laptop and redirect the USB port. Syncing is now seamless!
