Note
If you connect your PC and your VCI directly
using a cross-over ethernet cable, you can enter
any static IP address and subnet mask for the
VCI that is identical to your PC's IP address
except for the final IP address group. For
example: If you PC's IP address is 10.190.171.4,
the VCI must be set up with an IP address of
10.190.171."x" where "x" can be any number
except 4. The subnet mask must be the same
on both the PC and the VCI.
