The four IPs are, 61, 62 & 63

I did it in hosts now. My hosts file in the server (malachite) is as follows:

--------------------- malachite localhost malachite.emerald malachite malachite localhost malachite localhost malachite localhost malachite localhost

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

For the repositories I do use the IP of the network card connected to that 
specific machine. I haven experimented with computer names yet.

Interesting enough, if I ping from the server to a connected computer to the 
IP that it has been assigned, using, for example

ping -I eth1

I do get the correct response. Is not the case when I try to ping from that 
other computer back to the server.

Again, all works perfectly if I connect the computer to the integrated 
ethernet card.


Thank you very much!

Saddly this didn make it work
