That was what I would think of as a crossover cable. That would make for a 
very small LAN of only two machines. IN that case latency would be all in 
the two ends, either QmidiNet itself or jack. Somehow the way local 
network was described made me think it was larger.

Most NICs and switches do not need crossover cables any more as they auto 
detect/reroute internally. It only takes one end to do this. None of the 
newer switches I have seen have an "uplink" socket any more.
