I'm not quite quite sure why/if you're trying to make some kind of issue out of my initial description re colour?
It is a well recognized term..
"Vehicle" is a well-recognized term also. But you don't go to your mechanic with the expectation that he doesn't care what kind of vehicle you have, do you? Do you get obstinate when he asks for more detail and start providing Wikipedia links or try to placate him with a statement like "Well, it's an old truck"?
And, as I've said in other posts, I'm a linux newbie, so while I'll happily type in "ifconfig -a" or "netstat -rn" into my yun, could you tell me what I'm doing, or trying to do ?
The ethernet interface needs to have an IP configured on it manually as, by default, it attempts to get an IP from the device it's attached to using DHCP. "ifconfig -a" shows the current state of the WiFi and ethernet port. "netstat -rn" shows the current network routing. Not only do you need to set an IP on your ethernet port you also need to ensure that connections to the media device will be routed through that ethernet port.
I think your problem can be solved by executing:
ifconfig eth1 22.214.171.124 netmask 255.255.255.254
This command should also automatically add a route for 126.96.36.199/31 for that ethernet port.
Perform a "ping 188.8.131.52" to test to see if the connection works. Using SSH to test an ethernet connection can be unreliable -- notably a lack of DNS availability by the destination host can cause a long lag in the connection time. If the ping works then exercise patience when testing the SSH connection.
If nothing works, then again, provide the netstat and ifconfig output. Also, you may need a crossover ethernet cable between the Yun and media device. If the media device has a "link" light on the ethernet port then pay attention to see if it lights up when the cable is plugged in.
As an aside, 184.108.40.206/24 is a publicly addressable address range. 192.168.0.0/16 is typically used for a private network. You might already be aware of that, but just pointing it out.
