    USB tunnel

    Hi guys

    this is my problem.

    I have an electronic board connected via USB to a linux operative system.

    But i don't have the linux driver for communicate with the board. I only have the windows driver.

    Do you know if there is a kind of USB tunnel for control the board (connected to the linux operative systeme PC) directly from the PC running on windows.

    The linux pc and the windows pc are connected via ethernet.

    Thanks if you can help me. I don't from to begin for resolve this problem.

    Need a driver

    What's an "electronic board"? A musical keyboard? A LED display board?

    In any case, AFAIK if it's plugged into the Linux machine, the Linux machine needs to have a driver for it.

    You can use the 'usbview' or 'lsusb' commands if you have them installed to see the details of the device. That may help you search these forums or google more precisely for a driver or solutions.

    That USB tunnel thing sounds like an interesting idea, but I've never heard of anything like it.

    usb driver

    And if i have the usb driver for linux. Is it enought.

    I explain myself:

    For control the board we need two thing

    1) The usb driver linux (the board is connected via usb to a linux operative system)
    2) the board driver for linux.

    I don't have the board driver for linux, only for windows. If i have the usb driver can i tunnel the board to the windows operative system and control it from there?
