If they want to update the mount, they will either need serial ports on the machine (not likely) or ethernet. USB is not recommended for reasons I am sure you know as a developer.
USB to ethernet adapters are not advised for the same reason USB connections themselves are not advised to update the mount as needed. So while your solutions here solve the usage short-term, the better advise to the user is to have more of a long term solution to the problem at hand.
