NAME

usbipd - USB/IP server daemon  

SYNOPSIS

usbipd [options]

 

DESCRIPTION

usbipd provides USB/IP clients access to exported USB devices.

Devices have to explicitly be exported using usbip_bind_driver before usbipd makes them available to other hosts.

The daemon accepts connections from USB/IP clients on TCP port 3240.

 

OPTIONS

-D, --daemon
Run as a daemon process.

-d, --debug
Print debugging information.

-v, --version
Show version.

 

LIMITATIONS

usbipd offers no authentication or authorization for USB/IP. Any USB/IP client can connect and use exported devices.

 

EXAMPLES


    server:# modprobe usbip


    server:# usbipd -D
        - Start usbip daemon.


    server:# usbip_bind_driver --list
        - List driver assignments for usb devices.


    server:# usbip_bind_driver --usbip 1-2
        - Bind usbip.ko to the device of busid 1-2.
        - A usb device 1-2 is now exportable to other hosts!
        - Use 'usbip_bind_driver --other 1-2' when you want to shutdown exporting and use the device locally.
