well - being able to ping ones self does not really mean that the network
driver is working correctly, just that the stack is up and running. So,
you need to check the output of nicinfo on each machine. Make sure the
media rate is not 0, that the MAC address is sane, and that you can see both
Tx and Rx packets/bytes increasing. You can post the nicinfos here so
people can take a peek if you like.

We’ve got two QNX 6.1 systems. One is an Athlon with a NIC. The second is
a Versalogic “Bobcat” with x86 and ethernet. We’ve built the boot file
(with io-net) for the Bobcat with ethernet enabled. It can ping itself.
We’ve setup the Athlon with io-net so it can ping itself.
We’ve connected the two computers with a crossover cable, but they won’t
ping each other. The Athlon error message on ping is “Network is down”.
The Bobcat error message says “Host is down”.
What do we do now?
Thanks very much
