Silex MAC OS X El Capitan and macOS Sierra Compatibility Update

Our efforts in collaborating with Apple have resolved the USB compatibility issues introduced with MAC OS X (El Capitan). We've successfully tested our beta version of the driver with the latest macOS Sierra OS release and it is available for download now. Our official fully tested and validated driver will be available on our website for download by the end of next week.

The SX Virtual Link software is compatible with Silex USB device servers and consumer routers that incorporate Silex USB over IP technology for USB connectivity. This update applies only to macOS Sierra onwards. Apple has only made the compatibility changes for Sierra at this time, therefore the USB issues still exist on El Capitan.
