The USB/IP Project aims to develop a general USB device sharing system over IP network. To share USB devices between computers with their full functionality, USB/IP encapsulates "USB I/O messages" into TCP/IP payloads and transmits them between computers.

The following guide works on the vendor 4.4 kernel, for mainline kernel, the steps are similar.

Install gcc 7

   apt remove gcc-8
   apt install gcc-7
   ln -sf /usr/bin/gcc-7  /usr/bin/gcc

Install required libraries

   apt install libtool
   apt install libudev-dev make
   apt install hwdata


USBIP source code is from the Linux kernel, which can be found on github:

   ./configure --with-tcp-wrappers=no
   make install
   which usbip


Plug the USB device to ROCK Pi S USB 2.0 A port:

   modprobe usbip_host
   usbip list -l
   usbip bind -b 3-1
