  1. Hello,
    I've got a problem. I need to make connection between two computer

    Computer A has:
    1. USB port
    2. GNU/Linux Debian Woody with custom kernel 2.4.25 with my own
    backport of driver for ALi Corp M5632 chip based host-to-host USB 2.0

    Computer B has:
    1. USB port
    2. Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP (You choose. ;) )

    I was able to make connection between to Linux based computers (using
    usbnet), and two Windows computers but I have had no luck with Linux to
    Windows one - computers do not see each other (pings, etc.).

    I searched for the answer almost everywhere (google, groups archive,
    mail list of etc.) but didn't find the answer wheather it
    is possible not mention HOW to do it.
    I believe I need special driver for windows, but till today I was
    unable to find one.

    Oh, another thing. It HAS to be made through USB Cable, not ordinary
    networking card, RS232 null-modem cable etc, etc.

    Thank you for your answers,
    Radoslaw Grzanka
