I tried different cables and a backup dongle. I fiddled with the settings in
the Keyspan serial assistant. Nothing. Until, that is, I turned on the
Keyspan assistant's line monitor. I then could see the Newton trying to
dock. NCU was active in the background. I'd set NCU to allow syncing
anytime, so NCU responded. NPI, NBU, and NCU are all now working fine. My
cables all work. My dongles all work. Reversing my changes in the Keyspan
serial assistant didn't break the situation.

Apple iBook 500/640/10G/DSL Apple Newton 2100 Wierd. But, I'm not complaining.

Thanks to all for their suggestions.
