I have a Raspberry PI Zero running Raspbian Stretch 2017-09-07 configured in otg mode with the g_ether module loaded.
When I set a static IP in the interfaces files, connecting on Windows is successful. However, Ubuntu will NOT connect successfully. When I remove the static IP reference from the interfaces file, I can successfully connect to the PI via Ubuntu (after the usual connection config), but if the PI is reconnected, Ubuntu will generate a new network connection with the default settings.
Is there something I'm missing in configuring the PI, so I don't have to edit a new wired connection every time I connect the PI to an Ubuntu host?
