Re: [NTLK] Sharing Internet connection with a Wifi Mac

I'm still on the work to use my PowerBook as a wireless gateway for
my Newton, but this time, using a static address on the Newton.

Now, the Internet is resolved correctly, at least the servers name
are resolved (DNS). But when Mail V tries to connect to the servers,
it wait for ever for the connection and never get through the it to
send or receive email.

For information, the Mac is connected via Ethernet to a Linksys
nating router and shares its connection via Airport. If I ping an
Internet server from the source address of the Airport card, all is
working fine. So I suppose the routing is good.

Is there a network diagnostic tool for the Newton that can help me? I
mean, something that pings or trace the network to see where the
problem can be? I search UNNA, for no avail.
