Trying to connect RPI2 to Ubuntu Server 14.04


Perhaps I'm missing something, but I can't for the life of me figure out what's wrong. I have a RPi2 acting as a server running latest Rasbian Jessie, and a client running Ubuntu 14.04. I have tried also running the client on another Ubuntu PC 16.04, I don't have any Windows clients to try. I would be grateful for any assistance.

The server needs to be purchased to use the client as a daemon

Registering for licence for Linux CLI only


How can I purchase the server, the instructions are only for a GUI interface?

VirtualHere Client -> Right Click USB Hubs -> License... -> Copy to Clipboard

Am I missing a 'read-me' file which covers installation, configuration and licensing?

Hi Michael,

Yes, I figured it out, but please create a 'catch-me all readme' starting with checking whether your kernel has USBIP included, thru to the license part, I'm fairly savvy but it took me several hours of searching to put all the pieces together.

I'm trying to use Virtualhere to connect my USB DVB device, which doesn't play nice with ARM, back to my x86 ubuntu laptop which does. The DVB scan looks promising so far, but I haven't tuned a channel yet. Finger's crossed.
