I have two *nix boxes that are connected via ethernet. However I only have physical access to one of them. In working on the "remote" computer I messed up the ifcfg-eth0 file and instead of typing IPADDR= I typed IPPADDR (note the extra P). So at this point I believe the network boot script is still correctly loading the device drivers but obviously it will fail trying to set the IP address of the device.
So, knowing only the MAC address of the "remote" computer and that the network cable goes directly from my computer to the "remote" computer, is there any way I can connect to this system and correct the ifcfg-eth0 file without gaining physical access?
