Abstract : The first version of the Universal Serial Bus (USB) specification was released in January 1996. In April 2000, version 2.0 of the USB specification, which supports transfer rates up to 480 Mbps, was released.

Because of its low cost, high data-transfer rate, ease of use, and flexibility, USB has gained wide acceptance in the computer industry.

Today, many peripherals and devices connect to computers through USB interfaces. Currently, most general-purpose operating systems provide support for USB devices.In Linux, one cannot transfer data between 2 systems using a regular USB cable.

The USB to USB cable is a special cable that connects 2 PCs and makes file transfers in a snap without the networking adjustments and connected hassle.

Linux operating system does not provide remote access through USB between different machines .Here we utilize its high band width to transfer files between machines without using any network cables.

However such data transfer is possible in Windows operating system. But considering the bloom of the Linux operating system it is of utmost importance to enable such a transfer.
