    Hello,

    It has been a while since my last post here.
    I am giving a try on Neo again. Just got the latest image. It is up and running.

    I would like to use my Neo Full for USB to IP.
    More specifically, use usbip that is available for linux.
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/612355/share-usb-drive-over-network

    Long story short, I am trying to make some microcontroller(s) connected to the NEO USB show-up as a USB device to a PC (Linux/Mac/Windows) using WiFi.

    There is a way to do that using usbip in Linux. But the Kernel on the NEO does not seem to support it.
    I may be have missed it in this Forum and on the net search. Could not find an image for NEO with the kernel supporting usbip.
    Anyone know if there an OS image for NEO with it?

    Thank you,
    -Jack

    You can check it yourself in the file /boot/config -'uname -r` if the option has been set originally (I don't know the specific setting). If not set, you have to recompile the kernel by yourself.

    Activating usbip has changed since Ubuntu 10 you have to use for example sudo modprobe usbip-host

    For more info, also the kernel config parameters see for example http://blog.3mdeb.com/2015/10/27/linux/

    Hi Waltervl, thanks for the reply. It does not seem to be installed. It will take me a while to learn how to compile the Kernel with it. I rather use my time with other learning needs.

    I was trying my NEO until my RPI Zero-W arrives. For US$10, if I manage to make it work, I think I have what I need in a smaller foot print and less expensive to replicate with students. It seems that the RPI folks have it in the Kernel already. We will see.

    As always, we appreciate the support we get from people like you.

    Thank you,
    -Jack
