Well if you want to connect vial localtalk you will need a Nac IP server.
You most likely do not have one. (Do you have zones on your local talk
network?) You can set up a Mac IP server using a macintosh and the
appropriate software, but I assume that is not what you want. If I ere you
I would buy a new ethernet card. Meanwhile there is a sufficient range of
cards supported by the newt and some of them are really inexpensive.
