Ticket #1061 (closed defect: fixed)
MS Activesync cannot recognize a device
|Reported by:||yarus23||Owned by:|
I'm using Ubuntu gutsy as host and WinXP SP2 as quest and MS Activesync 4.5. I have enabled usbfs that is disabled by default in gutsy, that is how I did it:
- added "none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=1001,devmode=664 0 0" in /etc/fstab
- removed comments as suggested in http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/747
Then I have enabled USB and USB high speed in VM settings. Then while using WinXP I connect a device and select in VM's USB devices "HP generic RNDIS". Windows starts recognising a device and it fails - the device is not recognized.
When I go to Windows\Device Manager\USB I can see that "unknown" device is connected but its properties do not contain anything related to smartphone or HP.
May I hope that this important thing for many users that moved from Win to Lin will be fixed? Thanks!
