I needed to get an USB software dongle on a Windows Virtual Machine over the network.

apt-get install usbip

lsusb
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 096e:0001 Feitian Technologies, Inc.

You need to run this running on every boot

modprobe usbip_common_mod
modprobe usbip

usbip_bind_driver --list
usbip_bind_driver --usbip 5-2
usbipd -D

 

Now, go to the windows VM (the client and run):

C:\utils\usb_over_network\win>usbip.exe -l server.address.lan
(get the ID)
C:\utils\usb_over_network\win>usbip.exe -a server.address.lan 5-2
