Ummm. I think that I am right in saying that NCU over Ethernet is going to
be using AppleTalk and not TCP/IP. Now, I don't know enough about AppleTalk
(actually I know nothing about AppleTalk!) to know whether it has something
equivalent to TCP/IP ports. However, it is likely that your firewall's idea
of what a port is is very much something that is specific to IP.

Are your PowerBook and Newton the same side of the firewall? If not, why
not? If they are on the same side of the firewall, are they on different
subnets? If so, then you might have a router problem. You will need to get
your router to route the AppleTalk protocol. Some do not do this by default.
