I use good old Newton Connection Utilities, running in Classic. Works fine
for me over Ethernet (10BaseT or 802.11b). I doubt anybody's going to take
the time to carbonize NCU, even if such a thing were possible short of
Apple donating the source code.

It would be nice to have a Newton package installer that runs under X or
Darwin and supports Ethernet, but until that day....
