I want my Raspberry Pi Zero W to show up as an ethernet device to my iPad. It is doable. It's been proven to work.
The problem is in the details. After ensuring there is a usb0 device, I setup systemd-networkd. I know that the cable must support both power and data. I know that only the Power/Data USB port closer to the middle may be used. I know that the device supports UDC - USB Device Controller (which in turn supports the gadget mode (On the Go).
Requirements as I would guess:
- Fixed address for the Pi
- Pi is running a DHCP Server
- Multicast DNS is on
What steps am I missing that Raspbian Jessie is apparently doing automatically?
