The Digi AnywhereUSB® products have been manufactured for over 15 years and have reached their end of life. The AnywhereUSB Plus® family of USB over IP Remote Hubs are newer products which are similar in core functionality, but which offer enhanced performance, better security, better manageability, customization options, and additional features important in the modern device connectivity environment. There are some important differences between the two product families. This document describes some of the most important considerations in transitioning from AnywhereUSB to AnywhereUSB Plus.
The AnywhereUSB Plus product uses a different driver than the previous AnywhereUSB products, the new driver provides enhanced security, additional device support and greater flexibility than the previous driver. The new driver provides support for the latest Microsoft Windows operating systems and for use in virtualized environments. Customers can have both the old and new drivers installed on the same computer and operating concurrently. The old AnywhereUSB products were managed with a tool called AnywhereUSB Configuration Utility the new products are managed with a tool called AnywhereUSB Manager.
