I've been unable to determine on my own if I can do this. I'm wondering if it is possible to connect two Linux systems with USB 3.1 with type-C connectors to setup a point to point network (IP or Ethernet + IP) at the full 10Gbps the standard claims to permit. Do the host adapters support this? Do newer Linux kernels/tools support this? Can a regular cable be used?
Gigabit just isn't fast enough and USB 3.1 cards are cheap and built into new motherboards (like mine). 10Gbps Ethernet would be my second choice I guess, but it involves buying all new hardware and I'd have to go second hand.
