#1692 new enhancement

usb forwarding

Reported by: Antoine Martin Owned by: Antoine Martin
Priority: major Milestone: future
Component: core Version: trunk
Keywords: Cc:


We usually forward devices using an abstraction:

  • audio is forwarded as streams (#246 and older)
  • printers are virtualized (#598)
  • input devices can be mapped to uinput virtual devices (#1611)


But this doesn't work for all device types, some users may want to be able to access more esoteric devices remotely.

For that, we could use:

  • usbip: a general USB device sharing system over IP network
  • UsbRedir (from spice): a network protocol for sending usb device traffic over a network connection (supported in qemu)
