Unless you listen to Microsoft, who will tell you not to use such vendor-neutral protocols. With the qualification services, Belcarra provides all necessary updates to support any changes Microsoft makes in the host software for one full year. I modified the network startup code to bring up eth0 as the core of bridge, instead of calling “ifup”. Two devices with different brand labeling on the box and device may look identical at the USB level. So whenever USB host will try to seek the dhcp IP, dhcp server running at device and listning at usb0 interface will answer the call and assigned an IP. Sign up using Facebook.

CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST: Host for RNDIS and ActiveSync devices

Please log in or register to answer this question. Because it works with Microsoft’s standard RNDIS host driver available for all of Microsoft’s currently supported Windows operating systemsno extra software need be loaded on the host machine, lowering license costs and support problems.

Belcarra is most notably known for contributing the USB device-side extensions to the Linux open source community. Here’s what one looks like. Those two systems connect through USB network links, and the configuration problem is making sure there is complete IP connectivity.

The kernel in the PDA or whatever embedded Linux device you’re working with uses a slightly different driver. The problem only comes up with code derived from that Zaurus work. Those two Zaurus-specific drivers use nonstandard framing for Ethernet over USB, although the “eth-fd” driver enumerates as if it were conformant with hostt CDC Ethernet specification.


Actually we have to start a dhcp server over the interface usb0.

And for some reason, vendors seem to dislike using standard framing in their Windows drivers, so many minidrivers need to wrap a technically-unnecessary layer of headers around Ethernet packets for better interoperability. Only the tools and commands are very different on Linux hosts; most distributions for Linux don’t yet provide a way to automatically set up your bridge that’s as easy.

Generally it is best to build USB gadget drivers as rndie instead of building them into the kernel so you can unload one and load another.

Different devices may have different information available; for example, link availability is not always known. You probably don’t want to administer routing machinery except when you’re deploying some hkst of firewall. A key limitation is usually “no loops”: When you get these network hotplug events, you basically want to configure it.

This is different than a root NFS mount.


With older kernels, just “modprobe usbnet” to get everything; newer kernels modprobe the minidriver, which depends on usbnet to do all the USB-specific work. You’ll have to arrange naming and routing yourself, and this section shows how to set up using static IP jost. Except that the interface name is likely usb0 instead of usbf or usbd0.

This interface defines primitives to send and receive network data, and to query and set configuration hots and statistics. Retrieved from ” http: In late October a patch was submitted to teach “usbnet” how to use the current Zaurus-specific protocol. Unless you listen to Microsoft, who will tell you not to use such vendor-neutral protocols. Stack Overflow works best with JavaScript enabled. That will give you a big hint as to where to start looking for the problem. 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 hoxt bridge called “lan” in this particular way.

So I need to debug this problem.

So I did little change. With ethtool version 1. You should usually set the netmask to See also this page about handling such hotplug issues, mostly with Debian and wireless.
