I have just recently had a raspberry pi 3 model B+ and thought of a cool project. Being a total beginner at this area, i do not know if it is even possible.
My desktop pc is in a very pecular position in the room and i have not easy access to the USB ports. A usb hub would solve the problem but i could not seem to find a hub that has long cable in my area. I would like to use the pi as a wireless USB passthrough to my windows pc. That means when my pi is connected to the same network as my pc and i plug a usb on the pi it would show up on my pc like the usb was plugged to my pc directly. I could transfer files to and from it, format it, etc.
possible use cases.
- USB hub
- Maybe upload an arduino code through it
- Plug my printer to it
I wonder if anybody else has done it, searching google resulted me to no avail maybe because i do not have the right search term.
