I have used the pi zero in gadget mode off of a USB port on my mac for years. The only minor issue I had is that every time I plug in and boot the pi, a new driver is installed in the list. Catalina changed that. Now I can't get a reliable connection. Every time I reboot the pi, the address doesn't connect. I even added static settings to the /etc/dhcpcd.conf file on the pi, but can't seem to get things to work as they did before I updated my Mac.
Anyone else having these issues? Did you get them resolved?
Also now you need to manually add the RNDIS driver after the mac sees the pi.
If I plug the pi zero into the USB port of a Pi 3B+, it does work as expected.
All systems running latest Buster 9/26/19.
I have both used DHCP and manually set addresses on the mac.
What I want is:
Settings for both the pi and the mac such that when I plug it in, things work.
I want the pi to know where the gateway is (the mac).
