In our company, we use licensing USB dongle to control the license management. This dongle typically is plugged in to a server computer on the network. Now some user asked if we have a solution to use on a cloud based server(Citrix Server), where it is no possible to attach the dongle there. does anyone have experience to handle this situation?
- Check with the people who wrote the software the dongle came with for a compatible solution (that doesn't require a physical dongle).
- If you can get at the Citrix server itself you may be able to use USB pass-through to your software's VM.
- Check out Digi's "USBAnywhere" USB over IP network devices. Either discuss implementing one with your cloud provider or, depending on your scenario and how the dongle works, perhaps deploy it on the local LAN.
