we might have to go back and forth a bit, until we get the important info to each other .. that other machine.. the 192.168.1.47.. is that plugged into a router? it sounds like an address from a router.. that maybe is plugged into a cable modem..
lemme know that info and we can work from there.
ok, I'm connected through a DSL modem/wireless router.
here is my /sbin/ifconfig
