Home Questions Tags Users Unanswered. Most current Linux distributions include that package, though usually it’s not in the standard software profile. This is different than a root NFS mount. You can preconfigure those tools, modify the system setup to automate more of the setup, or more typically do both. 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.

This originally used separate driver, but then it merged with “usbnet”. Later kernels split out this minidriver into its own module. There’s the source and the internet.

Please log in or register to add a comment. There are other USB 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. You can set this with:. You can often open them up to look. That’s because they connect to two different hosts, not linuc one. Run the following commands to export you home directory to all computers on this sub-LAN:.

Belcarra is most notably known for contributing the USB device-side extensions to the Linux open source community.

These devices are unlike most other USB devices you’ll see. Additional information about Belcarra Technologies can be found on the company website at pinux. There is one time you may need such cables: In addition to the “software emulated” adapter model used in smart peripherals, there are also single-purpose adapters using real hardware.


By using our services, you agree to our use of cookies. Belcarra provides custom and new proprietary or GPL bus interface drivers for new or modified chips and chip-sets. Those two Zaurus-specific dndis use nonstandard framing for Ethernet over USB, although the “eth-fd” driver enumerates as if it were conformant with the CDC Ethernet specification.

To bring the interface up by hand, you might type:.

rndie The link level address will usually not be one from a manufacturer’s Linnux prom, except on higher end devices. They get this by using a mainstream ARM kernel such as 2. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. That means standard CDC Ethernet drivers need to have a way to blacklist Zaurus products, since they are incompatible with the protocol standard they advertise. If your device is very “ethernet-like” named ethN then your sysadmin tools will probably recognize them rnids help you set up the interface; else you’ll edit system config files.

See also this page about handling such hotplug issues, mostly with Debian and wireless. I modified the network startup code to bring up eth0 as the core of bridge, instead of calling “ifup”. If the driver is present you should get an ethN interface under ifconfig. On such systems, you can connect any number of these devices and they’d be automatically bridged as soon as they connect.

Use the Linux kernel “bridge” module along with the “bridge-utils” package, which includes the important brctl command. Linix Linux kernels supported them in roughly this order: The other is a “host” that sits on some LAN, and probably has Internet access. However, if that system does run Linux you can use the new USB Gadget framework to develop drivers there.

Host-to-host cables automatically use pairs of unique “locally assigned” IEEE addresses, and do not cause such problems. This maybe cause udev not working Some users have also found they need to shrink the rndia on the Zaurus, with ifconfig usb0 mtu Like the Belkin device above, this one includes LEDs to show data traffic and errors; you’ll have to imagine them flashing:. As a linuux network link, you could just configure it for use with IPv4.
