Unable to communicate with board via direct ethernet connection to PC

Hey all,

I have my FEZ Spider connected directly to my PC using the Ethernet J11D module and am trying to perform direct communication between the board and the PC via the connection. However, it is not working. I configure the settings on the board like this:

            ethernetJ11D.NetworkDown += ethernetJ11D_NetworkDown;
            ethernetJ11D.NetworkUp += ethernetJ11D_NetworkUp;

            if (!ethernetJ11D.NetworkInterface.NetworkInterface.IsDhcpEnabled)

            ethernetJ11D.NetworkInterface.EnableStaticIP("", "", "");
            ethernetJ11D.NetworkInterface.EnableStaticDns(new string[] { "" });

I then create a socket and listen on port 11000.

On the PC I try to open a socket on the IP address I assigned the device,, and on port 11000 and get this error:

I have a feeling I am making a mistake somewhere, but am at a loss as to where.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.
