Error 2 determining port, make sure the usbip kernel module is loaded

Hi Michael,

I am having an issue with a cloud-based Ubuntu 64-bit install that I am trying to use.

I can start the virtualhere client, it connects to the server, but as soon as I try to "use" a device, I get the following message:

21:25:47 INFO :VirtualHere 2.4.7 starting (Compiled: Sep 25 2014 01:42:45)
21:25:47 INFO :Using config at /home/ec2user/.vhui
21:25:47 INFO :IPC available at /tmp/vhclient
21:25:58 ERROR :Error 2 determining port, make sure the usbip kernel module is loaded

uname -a gives:

Linux ip-xxx-xx-xx-xx 3.13.0-29-generic #53-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jun 4 21:00:20 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Could you give me a hint here?

Thanks, Stuart

Michael

Hi Stuart, seems your cloud vendor has not compiled usbip staging drivers into their kernel, therefore you will need to compile them yourself by trying the following:

apt-get install usbip-source
apt-get source linux-image-$(uname -r)
cd /usr/src
tar -xvf usbip.tar.bz2
cd modules/usbip/source
make
make install
