View Full Version : [other] Connecting computers via USB to test program

September 25th, 2011, 10:03 PM
Hi everyone,

I wasn't really sure what would be the best place to put this, but:

I'm working on a school (it's an independent study, I'm a senior in High School) project that involves reading/writing data from/to USB. I am using libusb. I am writing data to an embedded device, and I'm wondering if there is anyway to connect my main Kubuntu development laptop to my iBook G4 (running Debian :p) via USB, and use wireshark to watch the data that is coming in from the development laptop, and then use pyusb to write data from the iBook to my development laptop, and see if it behaves in the way I expect.

Can anyone point me in the right direction? I tried Google, but all I got was info about transferring files between computers.
