Ooops, should have been a bit more expicit. The machines are running on a
private LAN that supports my 747 sim. All four machines require FG data.
While two machines require a full set of data (plus what I've added from
JSBSim) the remaining two require a smaller subset and I'll probably add a
fifth to run the MCDUs which requires even a smaller set. Plus there is
additional data using the opengc protocol which is also redundant.
Was not conptemplating the idea of going onto the Internet...
Running Debian with linux-2.4.26 on all machines. The network configuration
appears okay, in that a "ping 192.168.2.255" from any and all machines
generates a response from all machines
