Hi i am trying to connect 2 ubuntu computers as a LAN.
In my current setup I have:
One machine running ubuntu 11.10 with Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8101E/RTL8102E PCI Express Fast Ethernet controller
While the other machine is running Ubuntu 12.04 with an Atheros Communications Inc AR8152 v1.1 Fast Ethernet
The two machines are connected via a switch (Edimax ES-3205P).
Unfortunately I still cannot connect the two machines together. Can somebody please show me what to do and how to go about solving this issue?
All I had to do was set up both ip's maually, subnet mask to 255.255.255.0 and left blank both gateway and DNS.
