I am trying to transfer data between linux and windows machines using USB (Using Amkette flash link)cable. Previously i used network protocol (UDP) to transfer data between linux and windows. But now i need to use USB cable to transfer data, is this possible ? If possible which cable we need to Use ? Is there any libraries for USB data transfer or samples ?

Why do you need to use USB? Is it because one of the computers has no ethernet port? If so, a USB ethernet adaptor would seem the simplest solution, not only for this task but for doing anything network related.

It would also be cheaper than one of those USB datalink cables, you can't use a normal USB cable because both computers have USB host ports, which you cannot safely connect directly.
