Situation: To establish communications between two computers, and get ATA over Ethernet/iSCSI/any similar protocols to work so as to connect the storage as a network attachment storage.
Problem: I do not have access to the target (I have the initiator) -- the most I can do is to plug an ethernet cable into it.
Question: Is it possible to communicate between two computers by just plugging in the ethernet cable (I can do initiator side programming to help establish the connection, but can it communicate?)
Additional information 1: Initiator is a Linux OS, target is a Windows OS
Additional information 2: I thought of using SATA but I do not have access to the internals of the computer
Additional information 3: USB-to-USB and Wireless Network NAS is too slow for me to be able to use.
Additional information 4: Initiator program is written in Python
