    Hi guys,


    Is it possible to access USB ports (or any ports for that matter) on a separate machine over a LAN in Windows 2000?

    Is there any software to do this or is this possible at all?

    Cheers,


    Chris

    I don't think its possible, but if you plug something sharable (eg printer, USB hard drive/cdrom, zip drives, etc) to one such port, these can be accessed over a network.

    yeah what he said, plus.
    Depending on what it is, you might want to VNC over to the machine. :shrug:

    It all depends on what you want to use. If you're thinking that you can plug in a joystick or something on one PC, and use it on yours, no, you can't.
