I'm a linux newbe (used unix, vms and all that stuff ages ago). I want to create a minimal linux system that is connected to several usb devices (telescope mount, cameras, stepper focusers, etc) and to an IP network. All these devices would be controlled by a Windows 7 64bit machine on the same LAN. I need to use commercial software that is only on Windows, hence the "client" must be Windows, but not the "server". The USP/IP project looks like the perfect solution…so where to start?
As a proof of concept I'd like to install linux on an old laptop, and then ultimately use something like the "Fit-PC" for the final solution. Can someone point me to a linux install for my old laptop that works with usb/ip? This machine is ONLY going to be acting as a USB to IP gateway, so the smaller the install the better.
OK, tried LinuxMint and got the package installed….now on to debugging….
how are you coming on this??
