I would temporarily configure the ethernet port that I wanted to connect
as static addressing using an IP address range not used elsewhere on
either machine.  Something like this:

    in /etc/network/interfaces

          iface eth0 inet static

          auto eth0

I also confess that I can't remember how to configure unix, but as they
say, how hard could it be.
