Drobo

NAS Direct connection to PC Ethernet

As per Drobo on:

“You can even connect the Drobo FS directly to the Ethernet port on your computer without having to configure any settings.”

OK… so what is the secret? We do need a cross over cable and pre configure manually the IP addresses and sub-net. Anything else before I get that cable??

Thank you in advance for the learned expertise…
