Linux Console Client

The VirtualHere USB Client Console Edition can now run as a console only daemon in most Linux editions. It is a 100% static binary therefore it requires no runtime libraries, other than usbip drivers compiled into your Linux setup. usbip drivers are included in the Linux mainline so they are easy to compile with the Linux kernel make command.

The client will interact with the usbip drivers in the Linux Kernel to provide remote USB capabilities.

Running the Linux Client in the console is usually a two step process.

Step 1. Start the Client as a daemon so that it runs in the background using the -n flag. You can move it into an init.d script so it runs on startup as a daemon
Step 2. Run the client again and this time use the -t argument to control the daemon

Note: when running the client as a daemon (step 1) the VirtualHere Server it connects to must be purchased
