Nothing harsh meant.. I ended up learning the hard way when trying to
set up the distribution between a machine running Linux and one running
VxWorks. We wasted a day believing we had a network problem.. Or a cable

installation problem.. Everything other than the fact that we where
using two different Erlang versions.
