USB/IP server daemon


usbipd [options]


usbipd provides USB/IP clients access to exported USB devices.

Devices have to explicitly be exported using usbip bind before usbipd makes them available to other hosts.

The daemon accepts connections from USB/IP clients on TCP port 3240 by default.


-4,  --ipv4

Bind to IPv4. Default is both.

-6,  --ipv6

Bind to IPv6. Default is both.

-D,  --daemon

Run as a daemon process.

-d,  --debug

Print debugging information.

-PFILE, --pid FILE

Write process id to FILE.
If no FILE specified, use /var/run/usbipd.pid

-tPORT, --tcp-port PORT

Listen on TCP/IP port PORT.

-h,  --help

Print the program help message and exit.

-v,  --version

Show version.


usbipd offers no authentication or authorization for USB/IP. Any USB/IP client can connect and use exported devices.


   server:# modprobe usbip

   server:# usbipd -D
       - Start usbip daemon.

   server:# usbip list --local
       - List driver assignments for usb devices.

   server:# usbip bind --busid=1-2
       - Bind usbip-host.ko to the device of busid 1-2.
       - A usb device 1-2 is now exportable to other hosts!
       - Use 'usbip unbind --busid=1-2' when you want to shutdown exporting and use the device locally.
