usbredirect - exporting an USB device for use from another (virtual) machine

usbredirect [--device vendor:product] [--to addr:port] [--as addr:port]

usbredirect is an usbredir client for exporting an USB device either as TCP client or server, for use from another (virtual) machine through the usbredir protocol.

You can specify the USB device to export by USB id in the form of <vendorid>:<prodid>.

Notice that an instance of usbredirect can only be used to export a single USB device and it will close once the other side closes the connection. If you want to export multiple devices you can start multiple instances listening on different TCP ports.
