M2M Over AXLink?

I know this is kind of a noob question, but can I do Master to Master comms over AXLink between two NI3100s? And if so, would you mind giving be a quick overview of the configuration needed for each controller?

Regards,
Derek.

    Nope,

    The two axlink busses will be in conflict with each other.

    Why not use the IP connections? It's way faster.

    Long story involving corporate network security policies (blah). This was just an idea we were trying out in order find away around the policy.

    Thanks for the help,

    You could some crazy RS232 between the two. :(
    It would probably be easier to pull your own network cable and install a switch.

    Well, if you're able to run a CAT5 from one master to the other, you can just make you're own little network. It wouldn't have to bother them at all.
