Hello Tom,

Kindly find the below connectivity overview.

The current setup is as below

>From Windows 10 laptop => USB Hub connected with laptop = all required
hardware are connected with USB Hub (License are activated directly on
hardware ( Not Dongle))

and now, we are trying to implement the same setup on Virtual Machine using
Proxmox VE as blow. But licenses are not recognized from VM. As per the
hardware vendor, we have to connect the hardware directly with server and
not through network connected device.

Proxmox VE => USB HuB => from USB hub there are few physical Hardware
devices are connected




Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards / Cordialement,
