host ports -- you need to be able to use a port that appears on the
other end of the connection.
There is such a port on the NEC USB chip used in the NSLU2, and some
folks have reported success in wiring up a cable to it. Recent emails
have indicated that there seems to be some device driver and other
software issues present, even if one got the port wired.
So in a nutshell, it would be a good project, but not something that has
been known to work (and communicated to anyone here).
