Required to achieve host to host communication via USB file transfer cable

The requirement is to transfer data between 2 PC's (one windows and other Linux). We have procured a File transfer cable for the same which comes with some software installation for Windows but no such thing for Linux.

The device gets listed under the /dev/bus/usb/xxx directory but i am not able to open read or write to it using the open(), read(), write() system calls. Can anyone tell me how to effect the same?

We need to get this thing working through a C program rather than using a transfer utility supplied by vendor(as in case of Windows). Please let me know if anyone has info on the same

Thanks in advance

It might be useful to know a few things... like what product you bought, what distribution and release of Linux you want to use it with.

For future reference, this document will prove useful.
