CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST: Host for RNDIS and ActiveSync devices

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST has multiple definitions:

Host for RNDIS and ActiveSync devices (EXPERIMENTAL) found in drivers/net/usb/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_USB_NET_RNDIS_HOST:

Help text

This option enables hosting "Remote NDIS" USB networking links, as encouraged by Microsoft (instead of CDC Ethernet!) for use in various devices that may only support this protocol. A variant of this protocol (with even less public documentation) seems to be at the root of Microsoft's "ActiveSync" too.

Avoid using this protocol unless you have no better options. The protocol specification is incomplete, and is controlled by (and for) Microsoft; it isn't an "Open" ecosystem or market.
