Can you ping each unit from itself? Ping 192.168.1.2 from 192.168.1.2 etc. This will show that ip is basically working. To see the route table, use 'netstat -nr' which should look something like this:

[root@email sysconfig]# netstat -nr
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface
192.168.1.0   0.0.0.0         255.255.255.0 U         0 0          0 eth0
(plus maybe some more lines. I don't have my gumstix handy :(

Beyond this, I'm stumped. Better minds will no doubt chime in...

i am running low on advices, but here are a few thoughts of me:

the gumstix has no activated firewall by default.

what happens with a regular ping between them?

i once had a strange behavior of sshd on the gumstix, because i have
loaded too much on the flash memory of the gumstix. the result was that
there was no space left on the gumstix and the sshd could not
generate/store a fingerprint on the flash. also incoming connections
broke, because there was no space left on the flash.
be sure, that there are at least a few hundred kb left on the flash.

(i also had once very strange behavior of the gumstix in several ways,
which i solved be recopying the image to the flash. something must have
gone wrong in the first time.)

i never needed to modify the route tables, as long as i stayed in the
same local network. so i doubt, that this might solve your problem.
