We have a dynamic IP environment where the USB Redirector (Server Side) component is installed. Due to this, each time there is an IP change, the server needs to be re-added to the client as a new server and the setup needs to be done again.

In this scenario, the client-server connectivity is established from the client to the server over a specified TCP port the server listens on.

Instead, is there a way to establish connectivity from the USB Redirector server to the client? Ideally, we are trying to overcome the problem of reconfiguring the server on the client each time there is an IP change. If there are any other suggestions to overcome this, please let us know.

I did notice on this Manual page that there is a call back option that addresses this use case.

https://www.incentivespro.com/helps/usb-redirector/index.html

This also works on Linux Clients as long as both the server and client components are installed.

Posting this so that it might help others on this forum looking for similar solutions.

govindar, thank you for the update!

Here is the direct link to callback connection manual:
https://www.incentivespro.com/helps/usb-redirector/features-callback-connection.htm

And this is how you create and remove callback in USB Redirector for Linux:
Code:
usbsrv -create-callback <address>:<port>
usbsrv -close-callback <address>:<port>

It is important to specify the correct TCP port when creating callback connection, depending on which edition you use on the client side:
    USB Redirector uses port number 32032 for callbacks
    USB Redirector Client uses port number 32033 for callbacks
    USB Redirector for Linux uses port number 32032 for callbacks.
