We are using USB Redirector for Linux client on a Debian 7 server.
We need to upgrade this server to Debian 9.
So, I first upgraded the server to Debian 8 and USB Redirector for Linux didn't work anymore. I've tried to re-compile it for the current kernel and obtained kernel headers and kernels sources.
But after some time I gave up and switched back to Debian 7, because this is a production server and should not be unreachable to long.

On http://www.incentivespro.com/usb-server-install.html, I've read that "USB Redirector for Linux works on Debian 5 - 7".
This means that even the previous Debian 8 is not officially supported.
So, are there any plans to support current Debian without recompile it?
Otherwise we had to switch to "usbip" which should work smoothly with current Linux version.

Best regards,
Peter

You'll have to re-install USB Redirector after updating to newer kernel because it's kernel module should be compiled specifically for the kernel version you are running on.
The recommended sequence is: uninstall, then download the latest version of USB Redirector and in install it again.

When installing USB Redirector for Linux 3.6 on kernel 4.9, the installer will warn you about the lack of official support for that kernel version. You can ignore the warning and allow it to continue.
