    Teensy 3.6 Connected to Two PC's Via USB

    Are there any tutorials on this? I'm trying to communicate between two computers. One being a host and one being a target.

    Would something like this work?

    Would I need a breadboard and follow this tutorial?

    I'm trying to make a connection from a host computer sending data to the target computer.

    Before coming up with more questions or tutorial suggestions, you should better specify which kind of data and at which rate you want send from one computer to another. Which nature are the programs running on the computers to send and to receive data. And why would you need a Teensy 3.6 in-between? You could setup either direct serial communication or a kind of USB network bridge (cables are readily available).

    Reading memory from the target PC back to the HOST pc. Any rate, it's a proof of concept.

    I need it to be setup as I explained not through a simple USB bridge

    Was the T_3.6 picked for the second USB HOST port? So far most effort on that was for host usage - not sure about support for being a client to the second computer.

    If you put two T_LC's ( or 3.2, 3.5, 3.6 ) side by side with a Serial connection each could talk to one computer and share that data over the connection ( Serial or SPI with SPI_MSTransfer or other ).

    Two T_LC's would cost less - but not have the same potential for Serial throughput that T_3.2 and above would if that is critical, though SPI might improve that on T_LC.

    Two T_3.2's with Serial1 and Serial2 used in parallel might offer 6-8 Mbps throughput, though they might do even better with the SPI_MSTransfer which comes with error check and retry.
