Re: PC-RPi communication over USB

Yes I would be interested. Not quite the same chip on my cable and running win8 but it might lead me to an updated driver for use with the newer prolific chip.

Re: PC-RPi communication over USB

The Belkin "easy transfer cable" I have uses the PLUSB driver in linux. It has the PL-25A1 chip which is supported in that driver. My problem is not on the linux side, it's getting windows to treat the darn thing as a network interface. I'm afraid it may not be possible in Windows 8 which ...

Re: PC-RPi communication over USB

I got a few cables (Belkin Easy Transfer Cable for Windows 8) and the RPi seems to be working. It lists the adapter as usb0 under ifconfig and I can enable it: sudo ifconfig usb0 10.0.0.1 netmask 255.255.255.255 up However, I do not see a network adapter on the Windows 8 side of things. Anyone know ...

Re: PC-RPi communication over USB

What brand cable is that? Model or part number. I'm sure these are not all created equal. Was thinking of getting a Belkin brand, have had good luck in the past with their usb-ser cables. On a side note, I don't need the RPi's to communicate with each other, just with the PC to get updated setpoints...

Re: PC-RPi communication over USB

I've never used one myself... Seems to also be called a transfer cable, used when grandma gets a new laptop to transfer files from old to new. Curious, can more than one of these be used at the same time? IE PC connected to hub, hub linked to 3 raspberry pi's via 3 host to host usb cables. Not sure ...

Re: PC-RPi communication over USB

Are you referring to "host to host" USB cable? Or are you referring to a USB to Ethernet adapter?

PC-RPi communication over USB

Is there anyway I can connect a USB cable between a PC (Windows/Linux) and a RPi and communicate between applications I've written (am writing) without the use of USB-Serial converters? I realize TCP/IP would be a better choice but I'm being pressured to go this route.

WiringPi + Easy Driver

I realize there has been many topics about stepper motors and the RPi. I've done the searches and read up. With that said... I'm working on a project to pulse an Easy Driver (Big Easy Driver actually, https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/10735) from the RPi. My application is pretty simplistic,...
