I can't identify correct USB node

Hi guys!
How can I use nodes /dev/usbdevX.X_epXX to open, write and read over USB in C language programming ? How can I recognize valid node ? I need this to connect two SBC ARM9 boards via USB. In desktop linux, it's recognized via cdc_acm driver and it appear as /dev/ttyACM0 and work perfectly!

Erm, not sure if it will help, but have you tried / looked at libusb?

It seems as if the writer(s) of the Linux drivers for the X-Box USB gamepad used this quite successfully to do something similar to what you want to do... you might do well to look at their code as well.

Also, take a look at the MAME project's source for interfacing with the /dev/input/ tree - MAME works 100% with a USB X-Box gamepad.

E. g. my reasoning is that if you take a look at the above, you might at least find a starting point to how they identify which nodes contain the USB X-Box game controller... and how you might be able to identify the nodes you need for your devices.
