Default Web/Dock/Control all (3) on Ethernet - no switch

Just tried something nutty that works:

Using the Airport Express to connect Control to my Mac Pro via Wi-Fi works really well in environments with low interference. But in high-interference locations, Control gets a little laggy. BUT, my Mac Pro only has (2) Ethernet ports, and I'm trying to avoid adding a switch to this rig. So:

1. Internet > ethernet 1
2. Dock > ethernet 2
3. Control > Lightning USB camera adapter > USB ethernet adapter > ethernet > ethernet Thunderbolt adapter

Yes, 3 adapters, but it totally works. If you have extra Thunderbolt ports, you can use them as Ethernet ports and skip the switch.
