Re: [NTLK] NCU Port?

Newt and PB are fed from the same router, and they both have 192.168.253.x
addresses (Newt is 110 and PB is 100). PB gets its address from the Gatelock
(firewall/router/DHCP), and since Newt can't I give it a fixed IP in the
Internet Setup. But AFAIK the Dock app does not use the Internet Setups,

I also continue to have an issue getting NewtFTP to connect to the PB (which
has FTP checked in Sharing). This also does not work. I even tried
configuring the Gatelock box to route all port 21 (FTP) traffic to the PB -
no success.

At this point, NCU is much more important to me, so I'd really like to get
it going.
