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 requests into IP packets and transmits them between computers.

documentation for suse/ubuntu/windows is pretty spread over the internet as it's officially in the kernel but I got it working. (server on a SUSE linux and host on a Windows 7) One of my USB disks didn't work but our main usecase (a HW-debugger) did work! just some bluescreens in windows when terminating the windows program or disconnecting the USB device - but that's perfectly good for an alpha version! I don't want to stop using it anyway ;-)
Thanks for updates ;)
It take me a whole day but still cannot work under windoes os. The version I used is usbip0.2.0.
hi, where to submit patches ? I wrote one for 2 windows driver problems: - hang on initialising some usb-strorage devices, because of ignored IRP_MN_DEVICE_ENUMERATED - invalid read lengths < 4 bytes on some urbs. Causes some devices to not respond on this urb.
Great project! I was thrilled about running it on 8devices wireless board Carambola. It actually works!
