We (Joe) need to buy a GigE card for linux1 and to also set up conlog and conlogger to run on Nodus.
A spare Intel Pro 1000/GT desktop adapter (gigabit ethernet card) has been added to Linux1 and is now using that card to connect to the network.
This was after a slight scare when I somehow reset the bios on Linux1 during the first reboot after adding the card.
After some debugging and discussion with Yoichi, the bios was fixed and the computer works again, with its new faster network connection.
Although we both noted that Linux1 is a rather old machine, with only half a gig of Ram and reaching about 80% capacity on its 58 gigabyte hard drive (raid). Might be worth upgrading in general.
Need to figure out how to install conlog/conlogger programs next...
