Name        : usbredir

Version     : 0.4.2
Release     : 1.fc17
URL         : http://spice-space.org/page/UsbRedir
Summary     : USB network redirection protocol libraries
Description :
usbredir is a protocol for redirection USB traffic from a single USB device,
to a different (virtual) machine then the one to which the USB device is
attached. This package contains a number of libraries to help implementing
support for usbredir:

A library containing the parser for the usbredir protocol

A library implementing the usb-host side of a usbredir connection.
All that an application wishing to implement an usb-host needs to do is:
* Provide a libusb device handle for the device
* Provide write and read callbacks for the actual transport of usbredir data
* Monitor for usbredir and libusb read/write events and call their handlers
