Hi,

My problem sounds a bit different to some other posts related to USB forwarding I have seen on the forum. It is as follows:

  • Whilst using the Win-64 application, on the USB forwarding page, my devices keep being forwarded during approx. 20 sec. (the box is ticked) then get unforwarded (the box gets unticked), and after 2 sec. they get forwarded again. This loops again and again in the same fashion.
  • My USB ‘forwarded’ devices don’t respond at all times on Shadow, but work perfectly on my local PC

I have reached out to the Shadow support who provided me a basic answer to uninstall the app and delete all Shadow-related folders then re-install the app. It did not change my situation, and I got no further response since then…

I also installed the BETA and ALPHA version of the apps, but no luck either.  

 

Thanks for providing me any advice!

I have exactly the same issue as you and no matter what you do, the issue remains. Let's hope someone knows a solution, but my guess is that Shadow needs to get this one sorted themselves.

Hi.

I do have the same problem with the forwarding/onforwarding of all my devices as FlyingMaxFR describes. I tried all the given standard solutions from Shadow Support without success. The issue remains.

Hi,

Same here man. Since a few weeks my shadow pc keeps connecting and disconnecting my USB devices. I’ve also tried literally everything. My ping is lower than 10ms so that also shouldn’t be a issue. :tired_face:

Hi again @FlyingMaxFr .

I’ve a workaround. It’s not ideal, but it atleast let’s you connect 1 USB device.

See my detailed guide : 

Hope it helps ! :v_tone2:

Thanks mate for the thorough user guide!

I was reluctant to trying this method I saw a few weeks ago...but this works.

 

However, I’m still waiting for an official Shadow update/workaround to be fair...

Hi B3ATME

Thanks for you advice. Shadow Support couldn't help me and blamed my router.  Reason for me to cancel my subscription to find an other solution to play my favorite game Flightsimulator.

But thanks for your advice.

Hi,

I have the same problem here. USB peripheralps forwarding used to work fine for me using a Logitech G29 steering wheel, hard drives, usb pendrives and a joystick. A few weeks ago USB peripheralps forwarding stopped working. Shadow is not giving solution to the problem. We need a fix for this, or at least an explanation. It’s clear that the problem it’s in their side. When are you planning to solve this problem? Thanks.

USB forwarding was working very fine for me until now. My Internet speeds are the same when I was able to forward the USB device. Now it won’t allow me to connect to a USB device anyway.
