Keep in mind that you can not just connect one computer (the V) to another (your desktop) over USB and expect it to do anything. Unless there is support on a hardware level for the V to operate as a client device, which has never been mentioned by the Eve team as far as I know, it will not work.
Even though USB-C allows two devices to handshake and figure out who is host and who is client, it still requires devices capable of that.
For instance, when I connect my Lumia 950 to my V, they will work out that the V is the host and the 950 is the client. Traditionally, smartphones have been the client device, it’s why not much happens when you connect USB peripherals to a(n average) smartphone: even if you can get it to work with a pile of adapters or by soldering your own USB cable, the signals simply don’t get processed that way.
When I connect my Lumia 950 to a USB-C display (I got to play with the new Apple/LG 4K screen last week, it’s nice!), they will work out that the Lumia is the host and the screen is the client. This is possible because it is specifically engineered into that particular phone on a hardware level that it can also act as a host device.
(And in that last example, even though the phone is host and the screen is client for data purposes, the screen would be the one supplying power to the phone, because USB-C is sexy that way…)
