Beagle to Beagle

It's possible to connect the BeagleBoard to a PC using just a USB cable. Is it possible to link two BeagleBoards this way? If so, could someone please point me at the appropriate modules or documentation?

Configure one beagle as host and the other as gadget. Nothing special
required.

Make sure that both of them are powerd from the external DC supply.

Check. I already tired just plugging them together; the 'host' side was getting USB errors.

Windows isn't involved, and I didn't see anything else on that page which would be useful for beagle-beagle connection. Are you saying that the diagnostic images do support board-board USB connections?

I'm leaning towards just cross-connecting the UART2 lines, although this will mean re-writing my communication layer.
