The AnywhereUSB/14 (P/N AW-USB-14) and the AnywhereUSB/5M (P/N AW-USB-5M-W) are currently the only models that offers the Multi-Host Connections (MHC) feature, which allows multiple host PCs to connect to the AnywhereUSB/14 or AnywhereUSB/5M at the same time. With those models in particular, each host PC may be connected to one or more USB ports. Note, however, that multiple host PCs cannot "share" any of the same USB ports / USB devices.

Multiple host PCs can "take turns" connecting to the AnywhereUSB, however they cannot be connected to the AnywhereUSB simultaneously

It means only one computer can connect to one USB port and/or multiple USB ports but, multiple computers cannot share a single USB port in AnywhereUSB.

You can create groups and connect to the different host machines.

If 10 pc’s are connected to 10 different ports then, they can access their 10 different AUSB ports at the same time.
For example, let’s say we have PC 1 to PC 10. PC1 connects to AUSB port 1, PC 2 connects to AUSB port2, PC3 connects to AUSB port3 and so on...
All the PCs can access their AUSB ports at the same time. But PC1 and PC2 cannot connect to AUSB port 1 at the same time
