Unison over ethernet cable


I need to be able to use Unison (version 2.40.63) between two computers, both running Fedora 15, over an ethernet cable without a network connection. Any idea of how to do this?

Re: Unison over ethernet cable

Connect two machines through a switch, or with a cross-over cable (10/100 ethernet), or a straight cable (1Gbps).

Give each machine an IP address, netmask and default gateway:
ifconfig eth0 netmask
route add eth0 default gw

ifconfig eth0 netmask
route add eth0 default gw

Now run FTP, SSH, NFS or whatever server on one and run a client on the other to transfer data.
