Setting network b/w Linux machines using USB cable

To setup the USB network between two linux machines perform the following steps :- 1) Attach both the Linux machines using a USB cable. 2) Open the terminal window on each of the machines and type the following command (On first machine) ]# ifconfig usb0 netmask (On second machine) ]# ifconfig usb0 netmask Once done, try to ping the other machine using the assigned ip i.e. This technique has been tested with two machines with Fedora 9 on one machine and busybox on other. It should be able to work on other combinations of linux too.
