Can I connect my RPi A+ to my Macbook Pro with this setup? If so, how?
My goal is SSH/VNC. The Pi A+ is already set up to accept SSH/VNC connections. The Pi A+ can connect over USB to my router with this USB to Ethernet adapter. And my Macbook can connect directly to a Pi2 using the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter connected to the Ethernet port on the Pi2. But so far, no luck connecting the Macbook to the Pi A+ directly (i.e without going through my network).
