i do have a router in here somewhere, but it was too complicated for me to set up so i gave up..
my current setup has been working great for quite some time now..
this is the first time i've come across a problem..

Alright.
I will try my hardest to help you with your current configuration.

Just to be sure of your current configuration,
You have the internet that comes into one pc,
then from that pc you have an ethernet cable that connects to another pc.

Is this correct?

I had to ensure it was not a 169.*.*.* address.

Since you do not have a router, I am assuming it is statically set?

if it were 169.* i wouldnt be able to connect to it from PC1, or do my parallel computing stuff, or even have internet..

i dont know if its statically set or if it changes on occasion, or whether that matters eitherway..
it is set to obtain it automatically..

I am sorry,
Low post count automatic assumption of low technical ability :P

I am assuming you have check your firewall(ports open)?
Have you ensured this is configured correctly - link?
Are you trying to connect via hostname or ip?
