    knetwork manager troubles - new install

    I just installed the new kubuntu on a desktop for my friend. I tried connecting my laptop to his computer using a crossover cable. I have my ip set to static, and I set his ip to static.

    Yes, I'm using two different ips. For some reason, knetworkmanager just says "not connected" whenever I try to connect the computers. I tried a ping from my laptop, which gave no response.

    I checked knetworkmanager's version, and got this info
    Qt: 3.3.8b
    KDE: 3.5.10
    KNetworkManager: 0.7
    I tried to find out what kind of network adapter he has, I only saw "Intel Pro/1000 PL".

    My knetworkmanager on this machine is version 0.2.2. Is it possible his version uses "TCP/IP version 6 (instead of 4)?

    Should I try to find out what card he has specifically, and look for some kind of driver??

    Any suggestions would be a great help. Thank you.

    Well, he took the machine home, hooked it up to his modem, and has internet access.

    So I suspect the problem I was having has to be due to improper settings. I do not know what to change though

    Anyone have experience debugging LAN connections on linux? Any possible tips?

    Without you being able to gain access to his machine, I can only speculate on a few things.
    First, don't worry about IPv6. While it's included in almost every new OS, it still hasn't been widely implemented. So that's unlikely to be a major issue.
    You mentioned having static IP addresses. Did you have your router set up to give him the proper address?

    Hmm. I'm using a crossover cable.

    I'm glad the ip6 isn't an issue.
