Communication between two Clover devices connected via USB

I'm developing an app which should work on a configuration of Mini + Mini (or Station) connected via USB. The app would be installed on both devices and should send data from one device to another. It seems like the app can't get the user's permission to use the other Clover Mini as a USB device.

Should the app be whitelisted in Clover database to be able to send data from one Clover Mini to the other via USB although both are Clover devices?

EDIT: The configuration is a standard Clover configuration: customer-facing Mini + merchant-facing Mini (or Station), USB connected.

Generally, when Clover devices that are connected via USB, one device is used to take customer-facing payments (using Clover's USB Pay Display). What data are you attempting to send between the devices?

Yes, apps must be whitelisted to use USB peripherals. Please contact dev@clover.com to get your app whitelisted.

EDIT: I understand this is not a configuration we support at this time. Sorry for the confusion.

I edited the question to clarify that the app should work in a standard Clover configuration. Are the non-Clover apps allowed to use the USB connection alongside the Clover apps?

Only Clover apps are able to communicate through USB. All other apps would need to go through Clover services.
