The Linux version is 2. Another issue is that the two Ethernet addresses advertised by “eth-fd” don’t seem to be unique, so that using them for all of the PDAs in a workgroup can be problematic. Another way to package these devices takes a bit more money to provide two “B” connectors. Those are good to understand, since some other devices described here need to be administered like those cables; Linux bridging is a useful tool to make those two-node networks more manageable, and Windows XP includes this functionality too. Because it works with Microsoft’s standard RNDIS host driver available for all of Microsoft’s currently supported Windows operating systems , no extra software need be loaded on the host machine, lowering license costs and support problems. This interface defines primitives to send and receive network data, and to query and set configuration parameters and statistics. For dynamically assigned Ethernet addresses, that can’t work; using “bus-info” is the appropriate solution.

If an option can take multiple items, such as the dns option, they can be listed on the same line, or multiple lines.

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. Two devices with different brand labeling on the box and device may look identical at the USB level.

Until now, designers of Linux powered embedded devices have had to use custom software on the Windows side which complicates the users’ install procedures, incurs additional licensing fees, and adds to the support costs for products.


CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST: Host for RNDIS and ActiveSync devices

I modified the network startup code to bring up eth0 as the core of bridge, instead of calling “ifup”. The Linux version is 2.

The PDA side initialization is a bit different, but the host side initialization and most of the other information provided here stays the same.

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

One rneis is a host-to-host network cable. This probably will also give you better throughput. As yet, there is no Linux support for the new CDC “Ethernet Emulation Model”; other than supporting that link management protocol, there’s no end-user value in defining yet another framing scheme. The first part of bridge setup makes a logical LAN during network startup.

Enabling USB RNDIS Support – ARM9 Based Platforms – Critical Link Support

That means standard CDC Ethernet drivers need to have a way to blacklist Zaurus products, since they are incompatible with the protocol rnris they advertise.

Another example of a clear bug in the MSFT code: In particular, quite a lot of ARM chips have direct support rnds Linux 2. If that device talks like one of the host-to-host adapters listed above, a host won’t know it’s talking to a PDA that runs Linux directly.

Note that before Linux 2. By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies. Sign up using Facebook.


Unfortunately we can’t expect such bugs to get fixed by Microsoft. The result was a second driver for everything mentioned above That uses a USB host-to-host cable.

Actually we have to start a dhcp server over the interface usb0. The latest code is available at http: Those cables are forbidden in USB, since the electrical connections don’t make any sense at all.

Less configuration means fewer important things can go wrong. In general, you’d rather automate such things.

Basically, they’re missing the extra electronics shown above, which is necessary to let a USB “master” host talk to another one, by making both talk through a USB “slave” device. It also eliminates the need to route a two-node subnet for each new USB network device, making network administrators happier with your choice of peripheral hardware.

On the board side I have given a static Linnux by executing a command on startup. If it doesn’t, then you probably didn’t configure this driver or its modular form into your kernel build. Hi rmcn, Thank you!!!
