How to communicate between to PCs through USB?

Hi, 

 

In my application, i need to communicate between two PCs (Personal Computer) through USB by making one PC as Host and another PC

as Slave. How can i do this using LabVIEW application? Please suggest a way for doing this.

Hi,

My query is related to communication between two personal computers but not along PIC.

How can i do this?

Plug a USB/RS-232 converter into each pc. Connect with null modem serial cable. Use VISA Reads and Writes. Plug a USB NIC into each pc. Connect with crossover Ethernet cable. Use VISA Reads and Writes or TCP/IP Reads and Writes. Both of these options are inexpensive and easy to code. I don't think you can get away with just a USB cable between the two but that's not a LabVIEW issue. You might want to check the information at www.usb.org.

Hi,

 

I am using an embedded micro-controller application which is acting as a USB host. I want to know how to use PC (Personal Computer) as USB slave to demonstrate my Host application.

 

What I am looking for is, what ever the data that is transmitting from USB host should be displayed on the PC through USB.

You can't connect a host to a host and simply define one of them as a slave.

 

Host and slave is hardware-determined with USB.  This will not work.

 

There is such a thing as USB-on-the-go where a device can act as host or slave depending on the context but I've never heard of a PC USB controller adhering to this standard.
