ethernet wont connect point to point

running 3.17 kernel, i can establish connection between my PC and 706board via network switch, however if i connect board directly to win7 PC via ethernet port i cant ping the board at all.  I setup a board IP by using ifconfig eth0 someip

is there something i need to do in config menu ?

 

so after look at the bootup message i see this

under petalinux guide, during bootup

 

Configuring network interfaces... udhcpc (v1.20.2) started

Sending discover...

xemacps e000b000.ps7-ethernet: Set clk to 124999998 Hz

xemacps e000b000.ps7-ethernet: link up (1000/FULL)

 

however mine show when connect point to point

 

Configuring network interfaces... xemacps e000b000.ethernet: eth0: no PHY setup
udhcpc (v1.22.1) started
Sending discover...
Sending discover...
Sending discover...
No lease, forking to background

 

any ideas?

Are you running a DHCP servier on your PC?  If not you may need the network switch for discovery unless you can program the board to use a fixed IP address.

Try enabling "internet sharing" on your PC, that will initiate a DHCP server.
