Hardware client with USB "forward" to PC

Hi!
Im not able to run or install any VH-client software om my customers PCs. I want to install the VH -client on an Banana Pi M2 Berry (for example) and use the USB OTG port and connect it to the customers PC. The idea is that the customers PC can use the usb devices used by the VH- client in the Banana Pi. (The VH- client is controlled from an third party controlsystem through client SSH API). Could it be possible to do?

Yes it sort of is possible but i tried a few years ago and wrote the client to do this and the kernel was too buggy to allow this. I will add this to my TODO list but no time at the moment to work on it.

Feature request reminder

My customers are screaming for a solution like this. They want to switch PC:s connected to Microsoft teams equipment in Covid19 times...
So just a reminder of the feature request.

The good news is that the pi4 has a much more reliable OTG support though its USB-C port now so it is much more possible than it used to be. I did try to get it working about 8 months ago but it didnt work well still so i gave up. But i will revisit this. I get some requests directly via email for this feature too...
