Redboot - Ethernet transfer files

I connect an ethernet cable from my PC to the board (Olimex CS-e9302).
my PC (Ubuntu8.04) gets a static IP lets say and the board has an local IP static address.
how can i trasbfer files using RedBoot from my PC to board memory?
what is the command?
i could find a good match from redboots's documenetation.
the cable should be straigh or cross?

Going between two computers you normally need a crossover (unless the ethernet port is "intelligent" and will reconfigure itself).

To communicate, both machines must be on the same "subnet" (the IP numbers must match according to the netmask value) or else both need to specify their ethernet port as a "gateway" (all traffic which cannot be delivered is sent to the gateway). In your example above, the two machines can not communicate because they are on different subnets.
