Rendezvous address assignment. Client PCs must be running Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Mac OS X 10.2.8 or higher.
"The Keyspan USB Server makes it possible to share USB printers and USB scanners across a LAN in a home office, small office or classroom," stated Mike Ridenhour, president of Keyspan. "Client PCs can be wired or wireless - providing a great way to print from a Wi-Fi-based laptop."
Keyspan products provide "Connections for Your Computer." The company's first products provided serial ports for connecting to traditional computer peripherals such as modems, printers and graphics tablets. Over time, Keyspan has expanded its horizons, connecting the PC and Macintosh to other items found in the home, school and office.
