Are you sure telnetd or ftpd are enabled on your machine? But the outgoing
connections should still work. I recall others on linux-mac68k reporting
ICMP packets working fine but TCP being broken, but don't remember the fix
for it (might be a bug in the code copying large data packets to/from the
Nubus card). What kernel does show this problem? Did you try a more recent
kernel version?
