Virtual USB ports #networking

We recently came across this little nugget of an application, that allows you to use the ports of a RPi (or any linux computer, really) at a remote location. https://www.virtualhere.com/home
VirtualHere, or VHUSB, is a small application that allows users to use USB ports on a remote computer, through a network connection. We are using this across both LAN and WAN (Internet) connections, and have yet to see it not work. It's fairly fast, and very easy top operate.
We are using this to remotely access repeater programming ports on hilltops. This makes diagnostics and programming changes much easier, as we don't have to drive to a hilltop any longer to do this same work!

Check it out if you have such a need!
