[Sugar-devel] [SoaS] Errors from Soas 29

I've not recently tested the Sugar collaboration stack with Fedora, my
testing has been on Ubuntu.

But you're right on with the process to use; once they are able to
communicate over a common TCP/ip network that relays mDNS UDP
broadcast packets, an icon for each instance should appear in
Neighbourhood View.  Without that icon, the collaboration features
won't work.

When that icon does not appear, my checklist is;

- look for interesting log messages, especially in shell.log,

- make sure there are no alternate network paths, such as ethernet

- ping between two instance IP addresses to verify the network is

- tcpdump to look for mDNS and clique packets on two instances, making
  sure what is sent by one instance is also received by the other,

- use the Chat, Maze, or CollabWrapper test activities, as these have
  the most robust code for Telepathy use.
