Can not connect to Ghost Session after upgrade

I have upgraded to Ghost 8.0 and I am trying to make an image of a Dell GX280 and the ghost server is installed on a GX1. I can load Ghost successfully but I have tried to connect via crossover cable and use the directed connection option in Ghost and it gives me an error message' Unable to connect to session, please make sure Server is set up to accept sessions' it is set up to Accept on the Ghost Cast Server. I have no problems connecting to any other computer older than the GX280. I am wondering if this may be hardware related and the NIC in the GX280 is too fast for the GX1 to maintain.. could this be possible? Please advise this is highly important as my company is using the GX280 as our new standard so I need to get this image loaded and working.  Thanks so much.

When I worked at honeywell we used a Dos boot disk that enabled network accsess. I had it on a disk and I don't know where you would find it. It is called Net Boot.

I found an article for the error I was receiving and it was related to my McAfee installation. I had to disable McAfee and this worked successfully. Thanks.
