The testing you did was sufficient, no need to repeat, but here's more
detail on how these steps are done:

1.  "check Sugar frame for an IP address assignment".

The frame will have an icon for the USB ethernet adapter.  The icon is
on the bottom segment of the frame.  Hover mouse or right-click on the
icon to call up a palette.  The palette includes IPv4 address if one is

2.  "collaboration through sharing".

Consider laptops A and B.  Connect them via a wireless or wired network.
Wait for both laptops to list each other in the neighbourhood view.

On laptop A, start the Chat activity.  Wait for it to finish starting.
Change the "Share with" from "Private" to "My Neighborhood" (sic).

On laptop B, an icon should appear in the neighbourhood view
corresponding to the shared Chat activity ... click on it.  Wait for the
Chat activity to start.  Wait for the "Share with" to change
automatically from "Private" to "My Neighborhood".

Wait for the chat transcripts to indicate a join.  Converse by keyboard
between the two laptops.  Quit the activity on both laptops.

Yes, it does, thanks.  I've written up a summary in the ticket.
