Oops. Thanks. I suppose that I should have followed up on the
symptoms I reported. The lack of a carrier light led me to make my
unsubstantiated claim about MDI/MDI-X in the soekris, but somehow
wasn't sufficient for me to actually check it. The problem and
solution was right there beneath my nose all the time.
Thanks. I'll give it another try in a bit. (Time to dig up another
switch or cross-over cable.)
