Using RealPlayer 6 on w98 behind a 2.2.19/ipmasq server, I am able to
connect to a RealServer 6.

I think I have both those turned off:

# fgrep IP kernel-image-2.2.19pre17_custom.1.0_i386.config
(all other CONFIG_IP_* not set)

Real's original PNA approach used 7070.  The more recent RTSP uses 554 (tcp
and udp).  The newest may use something else.  You're more than welcome to
try my RealServer 6:


which should negotiate a RTSP connection with your RealPlayer 6.0 and above,
or try RTSP directly (File-->Open Location):
