I've got a perplexing problem trying to network my laptop (running LM 17.2, cinnamon) & pc (Win 7). The goal is to be able to remote desktop from my pc into LM, which I believe can be done by VNC server. Problem is, my pc & laptop can't talk to each other over eth0. I know it isn't hardware, having used eth0 on both machines with different devices.
First, here's my network infrastructure:
Router: 192..168.0.1 [static]--> laptop, wlan0, 192.168.0.5 [static IP] --- all working normally (internet access ok)
Next I tried plugging in my laptop and pc with ethernet, both PCs set to auto-DHCP. This gave them IPv6 addresses, which I couldn't ping via the ping command... When I disabled IPv6, they were unable to negotiate an IPv4 address. No problem, I can assign one manually, right?
So I tried
Laptop eth0 192.168..60.1 --> PC 192.168.60.2 [I used different subnet to isolate PC from other net traffic... right?]
laptop gateway 192.168.0.1 pc gateway 192.168.60.1
subnet 255.255.255.0 same
dns 188.8.131.52 same
But it didn't work... Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? I tried pinging 192.168.60.2 [pc] from the laptop, unreachable. Same with .1 from the pc. But each could ping itself.
In case it makes a difference, here's my inxi -FzxN
