XIMETA (ndas) support

at there are ancient linux driver files for ndas technology.  ndas are network enclosures/HD that connect your harddrives to the network via ethernet.  they do not use tcp/ip and have their own protocol (lpx) that ximeta owns.  ximeta is not willing to update the drivers on the website.  I have digged around for months trying to help people stuck with ndas devices.  most of them are dual booting with windows to get around the problem but why should us mighty linux users have to settle for this work around?

Linux Kernel Ethernet

This page documents Ethernet drivers on the Linux kernel. Typically Ethernet drivers are documented through the Documentation/ section of the kernel. This page is for those drivers that choose to document themselves through a wiki rather than plain text ASCII files. This follows the tradition of documentation followed by the wireless subsystem.

/etc/net is a new way to configure networks. It is designed to let you use all modern Linux network technologies in a convenient way. The best way to learn /etc/net is to look at examples, which I will try to provide for most technologies mentioned at LinuxNet pages.
You can find more information at the project's home page and freshmeat page.


I created a bridge that include eth0 and the bridge in preparation to setup Qemu with a bridged interace to the network.
ifconfig eth0 promisc up
brctl addbr br
ifconfig br netmask up
I have echoed 1 in /proc/sys/net/ipv4/conf/eth0/proxy_arp

I finish setting this up and evrything is fine. I ping the default gateway of the machine in the network attached to the eth0 interface and I get excellent replies.

Here is the problem, I vnc to and once I do that, I loose communication with
