What I understand is this, '192.168.0.101', if that is not correct,
re-reading or thinking about it won't help. If using the number I just
wrote doesn't work, then they must not be connected, because I do not
get any reply.
Additionally, you have a '.' between the words. To me, that would imply
that it is a computer entry that needs to have no spaces between the
words. The alternate being '_'. Am I reading something into that that
is not intended?
I appreciate the not-holding-my-hand, but if after you read this
response, I am still getting it wrong, I am wired differently and will
never make a connection. The preceding two paragraphs indicate the only
possible conclusions I can see. If neither are correct, I need baby
food. Thanks friend.
