How To Set Up A USB-Over-IP Server And Client With Debian Lenny

[ Thanks to Falko Timme for this link. ]

"This tutorial shows how to set up a USB-over-IP server with Debian Lenny as well as a USB-over-IP client (also running Debian Lenny). The USB/IP Project aims to develop a general USB device sharing system over IP network. To share USB devices between computers with their full functionality, USB/IP encapsulates "USB I/O messages" into TCP/IP payloads and transmits them between computers. USB-over-IP can be useful for virtual machines, for example, that don't have access to the host system's hardware - USB-over-IP allows virtual machines to use remote USB devices.

"I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

"1 Preliminary Note

"This tutorial is based on AliRezaTaleghani's tutorial How To Modify Your Gnu/Linux Box To Serve As A USB Over IP Server, but I've adjusted it for Debian Lenny (server and client). If you want to use a Windows client, please take a look at AliRezaTaleghani's tutorial - that part is still the same."
