Ah, maybe you could try to describe the issue more clearly. What are the connections? What are the symptoms of the problem? Did it ever work? What changed?

Likely, your problem is that you don't currently have a DTE to DCE connection between your laptop and your alpha server.

Both the alpha and your laptop likely both have DTE connections on them, so you will need a null modem cable and the appropriate gender benders between them.
