I am working on android 2.1 Host. When I connect the windows mobile 6.1 device to my android host through USB (In RNDIS Mode), network interface in android host is 'eth1' created instead of 'usb0'. Windows Mobiles is connected through activesync.

#ifconfig eth1
eth1 169.254.2.2 netmask 255.255.252.0 [UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST]

Why not 'usb0' is established?
Let it be 'eth1' only. Does it behave as 'usb0' only? or any rooting is required?

Please some body help me.

Thank You.

Ganesh
