The Tripp Lite U230-204-R, USB 2.0 share switch station allows you to share USB devices among multiple computers. Great for setups that require multiple computers sharing a USB Cable Modem, USB printer, scanner, external USB drive, and/or other USB peripherals. The peripheral can be assigned to a computer either manually or with software. Unique advanced management is available through a Windows-based application that can limit or extend the sharing capabilities between multiple computers. File transfer between the two attached computers is accomplished through an easy drag-n-drop screen. Simply press the "File Transfer" button on the unit to invoke the drag-n-drop screen.
