Not so. When you have an AppleTalk Remote Access session, you can select
"Remote Only" in your network control panel. That will ensure that all
your AppleTalk packets/info goes only through the Remote Access
connection. TCP/IP also does the same thing since you are encapsulating
TCP/IP into AppleTalk with a DDP/IP gateway (probably the Apple IP
Gateway). So that leaves one port available (Modem is being used for ARA,
Networking also going through Modem port, leaving the printer port).

The question is can you maintain an AppleTalk Remote Access session [on
the Modem port] and use the other available [printer] port for the
QuickCam? The answer? I dont know, maybe someone else does (did you ask
the Conectix Folks)?
