Local network between Linux and iPad


I have an iPad I want to connect to my laptop so I can use VNC on the iPad to use as a secondary monitor. I have setup the VNC part and that is working on my local network over WiFi. But I want to be able to use it when I am offline and at school etc. So what I want is to use a usb cable (usb-c to lightning) to connect my iPad via wired network. For this I would need to setup a network interface on my laptop over USB so my iPad can connect to it. Does anyone here know how to do this? I have googled but not found anything that helped.

I use Fedora linux 36 with i3wm.

iPad 10.2 (2021)

Welcome to the forums but I am not sure if that is possible. Perhaps someone else here will have an idea.

I am not sure that it will work. But I have seen people do it with a raspberry as the host and I would have the Linux PC as host so I thought it might work.
