I wonder is there a way for two computer to get access one usb
device at the same time?
I know there are swithes can be used to share one usb device one at a
time. But is there a
way for sharing the usb device at the same time? It is data acqustion
system and has to be
accessed by two computers.
Thanks a lot for help!
Re: two computer to share one usb device at the same time
a brief glance at that page. They all say manual switches. It doesn't
I did once ask the q in a shop, the guy thought plugging a keyboard
into the B end of the hub - using an A-B adaptor, would do it.
I gave it some thought and decided not to. I think my reason at the
time, was - and this was just a thought - that it wouldn't work because
by Crossover/straightthrough issues.
(like the issues one runs into in networking, connecting routers, or
computers to routers )
There is only one type of USB cable.. say, straighthrough. So, it is
designed to connect unlike interfaces.
The B port of a hub(ther is only 1) is deisgned for a comp to be
conected to it. With the standard(so, straight-through) usb cable.
Plug a keybaord into it, and it won't work. 'cos a keyboard interface
is the opposite of a computers. That is how the straightthrough usb
cable connects them
I hope this reads correctly, gtg!!
