Run the command line utility:
$ /opt/ftusbnet/bin/ftusbnetctl <command> [options]
To see the list of all supported commands, run:
$ /opt/ftusbnet/bin/ftusbnetctl help
To see the list of the devices available:
$ /opt/ftusbnet/bin/ftusbnetctl list ID VID: PID: REV Location Device name and status 107 07d1:3c03:0001 1-2 802.11 bg WLAN /Shared/ 202 046d:c045:2730 2-1 USB Optical Mouse /Unshared/
Here the columns are:
- Unique device identifier.
- Device hardware identifier (vendor ID, product ID, revision).
- USB device topology (can be "unknown" if your system cannot report the device topology).
- Device name and status
- Displays the name of the device and its current status (shared/unshared/connected).
You can share the device by its unique ID (an example below shows how to share USB Optical Mouse from the list above):
$ /opt/ftusbnet/bin/ftusbnetctl share 202
NOTE: Sharing by the device ID allows you to share separately one of the devices that have identical VID:PID:REV.
To unshare the device use unshare command with the same syntax as share:
$ /opt/ftusbnet/bin/ftusbnetctl unshare 202
