Back to Basics: How to clone over a TCP/IP peer to peer connection
To clone over TCP/IP, first create a network boot disk. Cloning over a TCP/IP peer-to-peer connection requires that each computer load network drivers for running TCP/IP. Starting each computer with the network boot disk automatically runs TCP/IP.
Although you can create the network boot disk manually, it's easier to use Ghost Boot Wizard. If using Ghost Boot Wizard in Norton Ghost, create the disk automatically by choosing the option Peer-to-Peer Network Boot Disk. If using Symantec Ghost 6.5, 7.0, or 7.5, choose the option Network Boot Disk instead.
Ghost Boot Wizard automatically formats the floppy disk and copies the necessary files to it such as operating system files, Ghost files, and the DOS drivers for the network interface card.
After starting each computer from the network boot disk, run the DOS executable file, Ghost.exe or Ghostpe.exe, at each computer and select the TCP/IP option. Next, select Master at one computer and Slave at the other computer. Ghost uses the computer you designate as the Master computer to control the cloning process.
Then follow the prompts.
