Re: P2P Networking Question

First of all i'd like to apologise for the late reply (real life stuff and all that), so here's what i got:

It's a brand new cable, and the link lights on both NIC's are on

Now what i found strange about the ifconfig results is the Tx/Rx packets... I guess this means that the NIC's on both machines are set up correctly and the cable works (correct me if i'm wrong).

Yea unfortunately it is, it's on an old dx2/66...
