I have been wondering about this for a while now. Since USB is bidirectional, is there a way to emulate a usb host in software using the client port on the c860?

I understand that there would be no power supply available on the client port, but this could be implemented in a cable. Apart from this though, what other hardware features are missing from a client side implementation of USB? Is there normally a hardware generated clock signal provided by the host?

The reason i'm thinking of this is that normally it is not conceivable to use a client usb device as a host - but in this case the client is intelligent and not a passive device like a camera, etc...
