Here the columns are:

Unique device identifier.
Device hardware identifier (vendor ID, product ID, revision).
USB device topology (can be "unknown" if your system cannot report the device topology).
Device name and status

You can share the device by its unique ID (an example below shows how to share USB mass storage device from the list above):

$ /opt/ftusbrdp/bin/ftusbrdpctl share 2

NOTE: Sharing by the device ID allows you to share separately one of the devices that have identical VID:PID:REV.

$ /opt/ftusbrdp/bin/ftusbrdpctl unshare 2
