[USRP-users] Very Close - Trying to Connect B210 Using VMware

Hi, 

I have a similar problem with a B200 on a Linux VM (archlinux) but I am using VMware (Workstation Player 12). I do have USB 3.0 enabled and the VM can see a USB 3.0 hard drive but it can't see the B200. Is there a similar solution for  VMware ?

thanks
Jacqueline

Hi Konstanitn,

I assume you mean you are using VirtualBox, not VMWare.

You will need to add a USB Filtering rule for the USRP within the settings for the virtual machine (within VirtualBox settings).

You will need to add a rule for VID: 2500 PID: 0020 for the B210.

Also, you need replace the value "<install-path>" with the path to which UHD is installed, commonly this is /usr/local/. uhd_images_downloader will be located /usr/local/lib/uhd/utils/uhd_image_downloader.py

Regards,
Nate Temple

I hear the beep noise when I open the Vmware software.  Thus, giving a good sign that the Linux OS as detected the USB 3.0 port of the B210.
