Yes. Appletalk does not use IP (it uses DDP), so 'redirecting a port'
will not do that job.

For file services you can use AppleShare/IP, which is supported by
netatalk (and uses TCP-Sockets to port 548).

Printing using AppleTalk shouldn't be possible via the Internet.
If you want to do that, you have to tunnel DDP or to bridge the
networks together.
