Question: Is this product compatible with the USB over Network software by Fabulatech? We want to share a remote USB port with another machine. Thank you.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. We are not familiar with the USB over Network software by Fabulatech. So, could not comment on compatibility.

However, we can say that this Icron product provides 'transparent to the host computer' USB extension, that does not require any special drivers; so, it should operate much like a standard USB hub in terms of compatibility with the USB over network software.

Icorn adds this additional information regarding compatibility:
'The Ranger 2244 complies with USB1.1 and USB 2.0 specifications governing the design of USB devices. However, Icron Technologies Corporation does not guarantee that all USB devices are compatible with the Ranger 2244, as there are a number of different configurations that may impact the operation of USB devices over extended distances.'
