I'm looking to establish p2p through thunderbolt 2. I've done this with MacBook Pro and PC and am looking to add a Ferora21 on a HP ZBook system into the mix.

Currently, I can add a network 1G interface dongle through the Thunderbolt and I'll see the interface when I run ifconfig. I can then utilize this interface to go out onto the network with out issues. I can connect a monitor, external drives through thunderbolt. lshw -short does a nice job of displaying the hardware on this system as well as lspci. I just can't seem to get a network interface or see any display of hardware when trying to do p2p direct through the thunderbolt port.

So I guess the question is, is there something I need to to enable/initialize first to see this hardware/network interface? Or is there even support for this type of connection through thunderbolt port in Fedoraxx?

Any ideas would be helpful.

Thank you
