ghost 11.5 peer 2 peer

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.

Connect both servers to the network, and boot with the ghost boot CD - obtain IP addresses, and use those details - i find this method far easier than determining issues with cross over cables - the cable could be faulty, the driver in ghost may not support crossover cabling - many variables, but not much benefit using a crossover cable.

A trick that I use, is to get an old switch, and connect that to the network, and both machines to be cloned to that switch - although they will both get IP addresses from the DHCP server, when they talk to each other, they talk direct, because the switch routes thier data directly to them, so you still get the speed increase. (make sure the switch is managed, or at least a smart switch - under no circumstances use a HUB!!! your network will pay for it!)

the solution could be used as a good network workaround to the cross connect issue, but it did not correct the problem.  i was using the incorrect client to set up my slave/master boot disks.  after setting it up the correct way, i was able to achieve the desired results.
