I have been able to setup and ping the RPI Zero Client from the RPI 3 Host:

caption: this is the RPI Zero W client, notice usb0 with static IP. I have left both RPI Zero and 3 connected via wifi to Resin.io in this case.

I have followed @Cwright11 forum posting on a similar topic where the conclusion was to change ‘ivp4’ settings of ‘mode=manual’ to ‘mode=share’ where the default is 10.42.x.1 as mentioned in the NetworkManager documentation.
I have tried many variations including attempting to change the IP addresses on the ethernet peripherals. The only configuration that I have found that maintains the static IP assignments and that functions as expected is the case I have shown above.
- How do I successfully IP forward yet maintain the IP addresses that work with the OTG Ethernet Gadget on RPI Zero W?
- How to put in place UDEV rules as shown in the recipe to enable multiple RPI Zero W?
Please forgive my ignorance if I am missing something elementary. I am relatively new to networking and am frustrated by the gaps in my knowledge of basic concepts. Thank you for considering this.
