After running sudo service isc-dhcp-server restart on the linux box I shut wired connections off, plugged in the cross over cable to both machines, and then turned on the wired connection on the linux box that I created to use a manual IP (10.0.0.1). The tablet doesn't get an IP assigned that I can tell - at least nothing shows up when I run ifconfig or 'ip addr'.
I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it or not, but on the tablet I took a look at /etc/dhcpcd/dhcpcd.conf and it appears that it only contains configuration for the wlan0 interface. Is it possible that I need to provide some additional configuration on the tablet side to get eth0 to work properly since it is being provided by the Asus Connect Dock?
That's a good point, probably you need to tell dhcpc on the tablet to work on eth0 too, never really tried that. Also you probably need to configure dhcpd on your PC for the subnet you use.
But maybe better to get a manually configured ping first, then tackle DHCP.
On your tablet try:
ip addr add 10.0.0.10/16 dev eth0
The /16 is just an example and should match the prefix set on your PC.
If you can get a ping with that, I am happy to assist you setting up DHCP.
