Trying to get communication between nodes to work in erlang, but having
trouble (both nodes are running R12B5 with the patch).  I'm following the
steps from When Distribution Won't Work<http://erlang.org/faq/problems.html#9.9>
:


   1. start  ,  (both with long
   names, both with same cookie, using -rsh ssh)
   2. kill epmd and restart it with -d -d for debugging mode
   3. from littleguy I call *net:ping('').* and it returns
   *pang*
   4. no messages go by on epmd on 
   5. running *tcpdump port 4369* on  and pinging again
   from , i see that the messages are in fact coming
   in:

listening on eth0, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes
09:45:22.158227 IP server2.net.40141 > server1.net.epmd: S
2310861565:2310861565(0) win 5840 <mss 1460,sackOK,timestamp 1087186457
0,nop,wscale 7>

so it looks like the messages are making it between the servers, but not
making it to erlang.  any ideas?
