    Remote USB, running USB peripherals over the network.

    I've finally setup a second computer, and have offloaded most of the computing, speeding up the 'scenery generator' or P3D.

    Here is the issue -- it looks like all potentiometers which I have wired up to a Leo Bodnar card (pluged into USB), and the joystick has to be run on the P3D or 'server' computer. This presents an issue because I would like to segregate the server machine from the MIP and don't want USB cables running to the computer.

    Has anyone tried a 'remote' USB program such as the USB/IP project -- http://usbip.sourceforge.net/

    Or USB for remote desktop ? http://www.usb-over-network.com/usb-...e-desktop.html



    This would allow you to keep all peripheries centralized on one computer.

    Thanks, and would appreciate some advice.

    Ben

    Doesn't FSUIPC allow you to do that? I seem to remember reading it the manual somewhere.

    I'm not too sure if it does, but even if it did, it needs to communicate directly to FMGS_Configure where all the inputs can be setup.

    Looks like USB/IP requires a UNIX/Linux server to operate on the backend.

    I may just try one of these -- http://www.startech.com/Networking-I...rver~USB4000IP
