Aha! I had not thought of that. I have never tried it, but bridging
might be what you want:
You will need a root shell on the phone. /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
is already set to "1" on my phone.
It works as soon as iptables rules are removed on the phone. This
requires root access on the phone.
I connected my laptop to my phone's WiFi hot spot and tethered my
desktop over USB. All I had to do was, on my phone, open a terminal,
become root, and flush all the iptables rule:
Before iptables rules are flushed, nothing works. Once iptables rules
are flushed, everything works including ping and ssh. Iptables rules are
restored after phone reboot.
I am running Cyanogenmod 13.0 (Android MarshMallow 6.0.1) on a Nexus 5X.
Root access is enabled.
