I have 2 Macintoshes. In the first Macintosh I have put in the USB port a device (like a iPod, Arduino, other) and I would like to connect from the second Macintosh to the device on the first.

The two Macintosh are on a LAN.

How can I do that?

Thanks for the link! This solution from Eltima (USB Network Gate) really works. Very sorry that it is not free, but it works stable and I am completely satisfied. – user499973 Oct 21 '15 at 7:06
