I hope that someone can assist me in this case - the guys in the german forum @ http://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/usb-mapping-bei-kvm/ could not.
Anyway more than a year ago I successfully configured KVM and VIRSH on my UBUNTU server 10.04 and installed Windows XP as a virtual machine. This is used for my home automatisation software called IP-Symcon (http://www.ip-symcon.de/) which runs on Windows only. It controls the heating and some electric switches in my home using an FTDI-device called FHZ-1300 which is connected by USB to my Ubuntu server. Somehow I was able to make this device visible to my Windows machine to install the needed driver and IP-Symcon was able to communicate with my device using this device.
Since about X-mas last year I installed some security updates to my Ubuntu host and after the reboot (which I did several times in the past successfully) my Windows installation could not find the FTDI-device anymore. Unfortunately I did not document the steps it tool to enable this feature in the past.
Using lsusb on the host I find the USB device:
Bus 003 Device 011: ID 0403:e0e8 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd
Can anyone point me to the right direction to re-enable USB passthrough for this device to my virtual machine?
Thanks in advance.
