Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

USB is a one-to-one relation so you won’t be able to share the dongle direct. You can share the contents on the USB but with most license dongles, the software packages need direct-access. One option would be to utilize something like AnywhereUSB which is network-based.
