I am looking to connect a Windows box to a Raspberry Pi using a USB - USB transfer/bridge cable, like the one pictured here. I have looked over other questions but I haven't seen anything similar to my goal. I know that I can use Ethernet to SSH/FTP into the Pi but I need to harness the speed of the USB 2.0 (480 mbps) over the 100 mbps Ethernet controller. I am using the Pi in some compression/write testing for a project.
Are there special drivers that are available on the Pi/Windows for such a task? Any tips/tricks for going about this? Once I know that the two devices are talking to each other, I am planning on writing a program in Java or Python to send data in both directions.
Thanks in advance for the help!
