rb2011 usb usage

Sun Jan 19, 2014 9:50 pm

Hi, sorry if this is a noob question but I have not been able to find an answer.
Only something quite old on http://forum.mikrotik.com/viewtopic.php?t=59709

I've seen only usage examples with usb port as "host" to attach disks, 3g modems, hubs...

Is it also possible to use rb2011 usb as "device" connected to a pc?
Can this be used as a serial console, a mass storage device, something else?

Greetings Paolo

I read mentioned thread and just tried it - nothing happens, unrecognized device. There aren't any "interesting features", nor "any features".
Still can't understand, why should i connect router to PC through USB, especially when can't be powered from it.

I was just curious about it, quoting user Normis from that thread
This is a microUSB port so that you can use your standart phone charger cable to plug the router into your PC and configure it directly over USB (something like a replacement for serial port). There are also some other exciting features planned for this port.
