I know it is too late. This discussion is "closed". Still, I
experimented with the NCX. First I manually set up the Internet: IP
10.0.0.2 (10.0.0.1 is my Tibook, which is not connected to any
network or internet, firewall is off), 225.225.255.0, DNS
200.100.200.10. After trying to connect 20 times my Mac shows
IPv6Address and changes the IP to 169.254.193.206 and gate to
255.255.0.0. I looks like connection but Newton cannot show the
computers name. So, I changed the internet setup as 169.... and
255.255.0.0, DNS no change. After that everything works but Newton
cannot show the computers name and connection s not established. WHAT
IS WRONG? I have to add that Newt is directly connected to Mac.
