im trying to ghost between two machines using a crossover cable.
once ive connected the cable between the two machines, i show the network icon connected on both as 1.0 gbps. i then launch ghost>peer 2 peer>master and a windows instructs "before attempting the operation, make sure that the ghost tcp/ip slave client is running" with ip address 169.254.135.51 as the local ip.
then i launch ghost>peer 2 peer>slave and a windows instructs " attempting to connect via tcp/ip use ip address 169.254.135.50 in master to connect to slave machine".
if i change the address on the master machine, an error occurs indicating a duplicate address.
if i leave the address in the original (dhcp) error message (1633) could not establish connection with ghost tcpip slave.
if i attempt with the slave, it cannot find the master. if i change the address of the slave it suggests that i change the address to 127.0.0.1, when i do this, it still does not see the master and a network error advises of a loopback problem.
both machines are identical running xp sp3 2gb ram 120 gb hd.
would like resolution so that i can finish this excersize and prepare for same on 2 identical production servers, please advise.
