You’ll have to arrange naming and routing yourself, and this section shows how to set up using static IP addressing. The other is a “host” that sits on some LAN, and probably has Internet access. Two devices with different brand labeling on the box and device may look identical at the USB level. A single USB 2. To bring the interface up by hand, you might type:.

As a standard network link, you could just configure it for use with IPv4.

Static Host RNDIS IP by linux based USB Gadget device – Stack Overflow

On the board side I have given a static IP by executing liunx command on startup. Instead, it will have been “locally assigned” during initialization of the “usbnet” driver. As shown here, nothing happens if there’s no “lan” bridge; so this change could go into config files on any system that might ever use a bridge called “lan” in this particular way.

Among other things, that means that if there’s more than one such PDA in use at your site, everyone who may be bridging one of them should override that non-unique address.

You can use ip link set usbN name newname or similar tools.

CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST: Host for RNDIS and ActiveSync devices

If you use a standard ARM Linux 2. Unless you lniux to Microsoft, who will tell you not to use such vendor-neutral protocols.


They act as Hosts in the networking sense while they are “devices” in the USB sense, so they behave like the other end of a host-to-host cable.

At the same time the Linux community was doing the work above in public, Rneis SLD development was being done behind closed doors. This page was last edited on 13 Augustat In this and other ways, the Remote NDIS specification allows for a wide range of device functionality and performance levels.

If there is published information, tutorials, or mailing lists, those will likely be findable via the latter.

Retrieved from ” http: So now it re boots into the right configuration, but this setup won’t play nicely with RedHat’s tools. One type is a host-to-host network cable. Actually we have to start a dhcp server over the interface usb0. It can easily carry network traffic, rnxis it along with all the other bus traffic.

However, if that system does run Linux you can use the new USB Gadget framework to develop drivers there. Most current Linux distributions include that package, though usually it’s not in the standard software profile.

The GNU/Linux “usbnet” Driver

Navigation Main Page Recent changes. With linuc version 1. You may be familiar with how bridging works with Microsoft Windows XP, when you connect your second network link.

This driver originally 2. Post as a guest Name. You might want to use stable bus-info values to figure out what network address to assign to a given link, if your routing configuration needs that.


Only the tools and commands are very different on Linux hosts; most distributions for Linux don’t yet provide a linx to automatically set up your bridge that’s as easy. This interface defines primitives to send and receive network data, and to query and set configuration parameters and statistics.

Linux Remote NDIS USB device function driver now available from Belcarra Technologies

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. If the driver is present lunux should get an ethN interface under ifconfig. Since that setup doesn’t use “ifup” to bring interfaces up, you nost need to manually set up each potential usb link. They use “A” connectors rectangular to connect to each host, and sometimes have two “B” connectors squarish going into the device.

Do NOT add the “usb d net” driver, just get the latest “usbnet” patch if you have one of the newest Zaurus models. The problem only comes up with code derived from that Zaurus rbdis.

The latest version of the usbnet driver include support for some firmware that Epson provided to help system-on-chip applications using Epson SOCs interoperate better with Linux.
