The only way you can legally connect one host to another is through one of these special devices which accepts commands from two hosts at the same time. Likely better status handshaking would help a lot. Linux has a fully featured IEEE On such systems, you can connect any number of these devices and they’d be automatically bridged as soon as they connect. Unless you listen to Microsoft, who will tell you not to use such vendor-neutral protocols. The driver is young, but it seems to work with at least some Nokia cell phones. Again, Kingston upon Tyne and Beverley, Russia.

That’s done for several reasons, most of which boil down to making it easier to bridge these links together. The program is set up into 3 steps. Different devices may have different information available; for example, zs268l availability is not always known. When you get these network hotplug events, you basically want to configure it. The other is a “host” that sits on some LAN, and probably has Internet access.

Another issue is that the two Ethernet addresses advertised by “eth-fd” don’t seem to be unique, so that using them for all of the PDAs in a workgroup can be problematic. Mic second part of bridge setup makes hotplugging add all USB interfaces to that bridge. You probably don’t want to administer routing machinery except when you’re deploying some kind of firewall.


Question about Latitude D Notebook 1 Answer 10 out of date installed drivers. The latest code is available at http: Only the tools and commands are very different on Linux hosts; most distributions for Linux don’t yet provide a way to automatically set up your bridge that’s as easy. If it doesn’t, then you probably didn’t configure this driver or its modular form into your kernel build.

Open the Update section as shown in the figure below. Some of those systems will run a real time OS, and microcontrollers often use very specialized operating environments.

Another approach to using IP over USB is to make the device look like a serial line or telecommunications modem, and then run PPP over those protocols. Since that setup doesn’t use “ifup” to bring interfaces up, you don’t nlc to manually set up each potential usb link.

One is a “leaf” system with no other network connectivity perhaps a laptop, PDA, or printer. Some users have also found they need to shrink the mtu on the Zaurus, with ifconfig usb0 mtu Do NOT add the “usb d net” driver, just get the latest “usbnet” patch if you have one of the newest Zaurus models. jic

That is, this appears like a normal Ethernet link, not like a point-to-point link. The host side initialization in those as268, is exactly as shown earlier, since the host uses the “usbnet” driver. Use the Linux kernel “bridge” module along with the “bridge-utils” package, which includes the important brctl command. Many messages won’t be available unless debugging is enabled. It makes sense to have a common driver core because only a handful of control and setup operations really need product- or class-specific code.


You should usually set the netmask to Here’s a link to this great service Good luck! You might have noticed that the MS-Windows driver provided with most USB host-to-host cables implements a limited form of bridging. With older kernels, just “modprobe usbnet” to get everything; newer kernels modprobe the minidriver, which depends on usbnet to do all the USB-specific work.

Likely better status handshaking would help a lot. They’re not GUI tools, but they’re a better start than what’s sketched here. The link level address will usually not be one from a manufacturer’s ID prom, except on higher end devices. These devices are unlike most other USB devices you’ll see. Jsb these are based on the same core hardware. You know these are bugs in MS-Windows because those things aren’t allowed to happen no matter what the external USB device does. Stable names let you build systems with logic like “since this link goes to the test network, we will firewall it carefully when we bring it up”.

This is the default framing, used with most devices.
