Those two systems connect through USB network links, and the configuration problem is making sure there is complete IP connectivity. You can often open them up to look. You’ll need to do that by hand, since most sysadmin tools don’t understand bridge configuration. Seek out other options if you can. If you try to use one, you might even short out your USB electronics and so need to buy a new system.

They use “A” connectors rectangular to connect to each host, and sometimes have two “B” connectors squarish going into the device.
The bridge may cause a short delay one document said thirty seconds before you can access the new devices, and should quickly start forwarding packets.

There’s an incompatible derivative of “usbnet”, called usbdnet just an added ‘d’which expects to talk to an eth-fd driver instead of “usb-eth” inside your Zaurus. Sign up using Facebook. Hi rmcn, Thank you!!! Do NOT add the “usb d net” driver, just get the latest “usbnet” patch if you have one of the newest Zaurus models. So it’s easy to configure bridging ; a laptop might connect to a desktop with a USB networking cable, and then to the local LAN through a bridge.
You probably don’t want to administer routing machinery except when you’re deploying some kind of firewall. With ethtool version 1. Those two systems connect through USB network links, and the configuration problem is making sure there is complete IP connectivity.
Yes, you may occasionally see “A-to-A” cables for sale; don’t waste your money buying them. These distributions have an ifup command that requires each device to be pre-configured, with a unique config file.
There are also Linux-USB device drivers for ethernet adapters that don’t use this framework. 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. If your device is very “ethernet-like” named ethN then your sysadmin tools will probably recognize them and help you set up the interface; else you’ll edit system config files.
That’s the preferred solution for Zaurus interoperability. You can use ip link set usbN name newname or similar tools. It’s also incomplete because products that use specialized chips or which reuse other product designs may be repackaged without changing how they work. Use the “Simple” framing for new devices; the only good reason to use anything else is to work around hardware problems, when for any reason that hardware can’t be changed.
These devices are unlike most other USB devices you’ll see.

Toggle navigation Forum Navigation. Once that driver starts using that USB device, you’ll notice a message like this in your syslog files, announcing the presence of a new usb0 or usb1usb2etc network interface that you can use with ifconfig and similar network tools.

Many people will be familiar with PDAs running Linux, discussed later in this section, but the embedded system doesn’t need to be a PDA. Ethernet adapters, or devices that run like them many cable rniswould normally use names like “eth0”.
In particular, quite a lot of ARM chips have direct support in Linux 2. There are other USB 2.
