They bind your ethernet MAC id. So if you are already

Please guide me on this part (setting the windows MAC).
So you are using SSV connection from another system running windows?
I'm dual booting WinXP & Fedora 15.
Which Windows OS you are using? For the particular
version of windows
search for finding MAC/physical address of ethernet card. Note that
Suppose this address is 11:22:33:44:55:66
enter following command in fedora:
ifconfig eth0 hw ether 11:22:33:44:55:66
then again try to connect.
Got it, thanks!
One more query, when you talk about setting up the network details in
Fedora, do you mean that I have to edit the /etc/networks file. The options
button in "Network Settings" is always disabled hence I'm not able to
change the network settings through GUI. Please guide.
Thanks & Regards,
