Hi,

Is there no way of renaming a device in the linux version? In the windows version you can rename the devices as you please, so the user that needs to connect to the USB device are sure to choose the right one.

Hello dwi,

Yes, you can use -nickname command line option, its format is as follows:
Code:
usbsrv -nickname "<nickname>" <device>
usbsrv -nickname "<nickname>" <deviceid>
usbsrv -nickname "<nickname>" "<device name>"


Examples:
Code:
usbsrv -nickname  "my super dongle" -vid 33aa -pid 55bb
usbsrv -nickname  "my super dongle" -serial 1234567890
usbsrv -nickname  "my super dongle" -usbport 1-2
usbsrv -nickname  "my super dongle" 2

Unfortunately, it is not possible in the current version. But it will be possible for USB devices with a serial number in the next version. The serial number is the only way to uniquely identify a USB device regardless of USB port it is attached to.
