The USB 3.0 spec also indicates that this cable can be used to connect two PCs together; however, the unfortunate reality is that no operating system currently supports this feature. To network two PCs directly, we recommend an Ethernet cross-over cable instead.
The pinout of this cable is built to DataPro's enhanced specifications.
While the USB 3.0 spec only calls for the USB 3.0 pins to be connected in cross-over, this cable also has the USB 1.1/2.0 pins connected straight-through. This makes it backwards-compatible with our 1592 USB 2.0 cables, but also means that it may cause damage if used for debugging or device-to-device connections.
Please note that computer-to-computer connections are not supported by this cable in any capacity.
