  The first attempt to do this, with a manual "move the cable between ports, 
and use the same IP address for both" didn't work.  If I get too much further, 
I'll make a new cable (it's a long run, this server isn't in the service 
area/room/closet yet) and try it the hard way.  Would you suggest using two 
different IP addresses, given that there are two MACs ?
