Can I call 4 metres of cross-wired CAT5 a home network?
With a box at each end of the wire?
The boxes are talking to each other (ping works both ways) but I am
only getting so far: I can telnet and ftp from the RH7.1 to the
RH6.2 box, and X-display from the 7.1 on the 6.2, but not vice
versa. The 6.2 box has inetd set up and I think I understand that,
but 7.1 comes with xinetd and I am not so sure about that.
The xinetd services seem to work on the 7.1 box: I can telnet
locally. If I try to connect (telnet, ftp or X) from the 6.2 to the
7.1 box I get a "connection refused" or similar message.
Should I be thinking about iptables or something like that?
