VirtualBox with USB Dongle

I run your software in VirtualBox 5, and need to connect the USB dongle you sent me. How do I make your software see the USB Dongle?

To attach the USB Dongle to the virtual machine running the Telium software:
  • Optional: install the free VirtualBox Extension Pack to take advantage of USB 3.0
  • Start your virtual machine
  • Plug the USB Dongle into a USB port of your host computer
  • In VirtualBox click on Devices -> USB, then click on ‘USB device to share’.

Once VirtualBox configures the USB connection, the USB Dongle will appear in your guest OS. Issue the commands 'lsusb' from a command prompt to confirm the USB dongle is visible. (Probably reports as 'Philips Elite')
