Yes - BOTH machines give the same MAC address for the respective IP addresses.
BOTH machines have the same versions of client, server and IBOConsole ( and
IB_SQL). But one TESTS OK to the other servers, but will not actually connect
- connection actively refused - while the clone is working fine. Both access
apache fine on the same remote servers.

I am missing something simple but this is not the first time I've had windows
machines that did not want to do things properly :(
Anyway I'm out of the door 10 minutes ago and I'll just have to use Sheila's
laptop for the time being ;)
