Default Using a computer as a USB female to female

I know this is an odd request, and you can buy USB female to female adapters cheaply, but for the purpose of this, pretend you can't just go buy one (long story). Would it be possible to plug a USB cable into one port, and another cable into a different port, and have the computer just pass the signal input from one cable out through the other, acting kind of like a female to female adapter?

I didn't know what category to put this in on the forums, but I figured it would be some obscure software that would allow me to do this, so...

Thanks for the help,
-Zman

Depends on what you're doing, and if there's software to do so.

If you’re talking about using between two computers with Windows OS, yes, you can buy a transfer cable, I couldn’t say if they are really reliable on Windows 10, you would have to read reviews etc..

But Amazon sell them
