The port type matters because it tells which is the USB host, and which is the device. A B socket means that that is a device, while an A plug means that it is the host which gives commands.

What I want to do is have other machines plug into the Linux machine, using a normal A-B cable just like you do with any other removable drive. The Linux box is going to be handling an encryption layer and a LVM layer for RAID. The computers plugged into it just see a removable disk.
