I don't have to resources to work on the hardware implementation (200 EUR is too much for a USB host for me) but I'd be glad to help everyone who wants to work on it or can find a less expensive way to implement it.
The modifications on the N900 and testing with a normal Linux desktop should be
possible as soon as we can compile custom N900 kernels again.

I tried to set up the USBIP connection using Ubuntu karmic on my desktop and laptop according to this tutorial:

http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-mod...over-ip-server

But I'm having troubles.
At the very end when you try to establish the connection using
Code:
sudo usbip -a <server-ip> X-Y
I get this error, no matter what device I try (I tried a USBstick, a USB to serial converter and a DVB-T stick):
Code:
request failed at peer, 1
usbip err: vhci_attach.c: 324 (query_import_device) recv op_common
usbip err: vhci_attach.c: 362 (attach_device) query
I also tried it the other way around, switching the USBIP server and client, but I get the same error.
Anybody have any ideas?
When I have this working I will try to get the N900 working as a client.

Edit:
Using windows as a client I get a similar problem (in usbip.c instead of vhci_attach.c)

it seems that it cannot even contact your usbipd on your server.
maybe it must be started as root or is the firewall enabled?

Just a thought, could you use an n900 with this over wifi?

look interesting but I suspect it does'nt use the open USB/IP but some proprietary
protocol.

Just wondering if this is the same technology.

It seems to be the same idea, but a different protocol.
the user-space programs are not open-source.
I wonder how that company survives as they seem to offer only freeware.

I think they are waiting for a hardware manufacturer to pick them up and mass produce?
