Hi all,

Just an FYI, I finally resolved the issue after getting someone from our team to look at it. It happens that only one of our ethernet socket is available for static IP setup, the other is a NT-domain-DHCP clients connection. So, I put in a hub with uplink instead of the Sun workstation and connected. both the Sun and Laptop with linux and now it works just fine on linc 2.4.1 with the driver that andrew wrote.

Sorry took sometime as other things came up.

Thanks for the help.
