hi Jon
Whether you use appletalk or TCP/IP depends on which package you are
attempting to connect to.
see <>
I think that NCU running in classic is a good choice therefore I use
AppleTalk, Depending on which version of OS X you use there may be
several ways of turning Appletalk on. I believe that while a classic
application is running you can use Chooser to activate it.

You cannot network the newton with another computer in the same sense
that you can network two Macs. You have to use a connection package
on the newt (Dock or Newtsync) to connect to a compatible and
running application on the Mac.

Which connection application are you attempting to connect to?
