Firstly I want to say that I am not very familiar with Windows systems, usually I do my development on some Linux distribution but external factors have forced me to work on Windows system for a few months.
Now about the problem, I am developing some software on Gumstix Overo board. Before I connected to the system that is on board (http://www.angstrom-distribution.org/) using
screen program and I also connected my computer with this board using crossover ethernet cable. The only thing that I needed to do is to statically assign IP addresses and masks on both machines.
Now on windows, I can use Putty to connect through serial interface but I am having some problems with getting crossover connection working. I can ping my board from Windows machine, but the ping from board to Windows fails, no responses are delivered to my board. I tried to disable system firewall service but it didn't help my situation.
What could I do to make my connection bidirectional (so to speak).
When I connected both machines to my local network (so both of them can access internet) I am still having the same problem. that ping from board to host fails
