SX Virtual Link is SIlex's propriety utility that allows users to discover and connect to USB devices connected to Silex USB Device Servers.The way it works is that the software emulates a USB connection on the computer, and makes the USB device (such as a printer or a disk drive) connected to the SX Virtual Link enabled device look as if it were directly connected. This makes it easy to connect and share USB devices on the network.

To help system integrators, device manufacturers and end user Windows programmers to add Silex SX Virtual Link functionality into Windows applications Silex offers  the SX-Virtual Link SDK to developers for no charge.
