"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."
