Thanks to Alan Larson and Tuomas Eerola for suggesting that I check whether appletalk was turned off. According to Tuomas, appletalk uses printer port by default. I turned off appletalk and this solved my problem. I must confess to being a little mystified since my appletalk was configured with IPRemote/ARNS, and I was connected to an apppletalk network over PPP which goes through my MODEM port, not my PRINTER port. Is this a bug/feature of appletalk or IPRemote, i.e. it grabs the printer port even if it isn't using it?

Thanks again! -Joe Izen
