Dear all,

I am trying to connect my MP2000u to my Macbook Pro running Leopard
(10.5.4), without success. I really appreciate any help!!

On the Mac, going to "Network" under "System Preferences" I see that
my Ethernet connection is configured like the following:
Configure: Manually
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Router: (blank)
DNS Server: (Blank)
Search Domains: Blank)

AppleTalk: Active

File sharing: on
Web sharing: on
Internet sharing: on
Firewall: Allow al incoming connections

Although my MP2000u is connect to my MacBook Pro via ethernet, the
Network preferences on the Mac says "Cable unplugged" .

On the MP2000u:

Under the Internet Setup:
Configuration: Manual
Card: 3Com 3C589D PC Card
Local IP address:
Gateway/ Router Address:
Primary DNS/ Name Server Address:
Domain Name: None

Under Preferences, I selected the AppleTalk and:
Connect using: Ethertalk
Card: 3Com 3C589D PC Card

Extensions that I have installed:
NIE Ethernet
among many others. As I mentioned in the first email, I was able to
connect my MP to my Mac only 2 times...

On the Dock I select "Connect via:TCP/IP" and, under dock preferences
is: Address: and Port 3679.

It's imporant to mention that the 3Com dongle blinks when I am trying
to connect to the Mac and then a progress bar saying "waiting for a
response" shows up for a while... After that a window shows up saying:
"Dock TCP/IP cannot reach the server."

Is there any thing wrong with my configuration?

Sorry for the long email, but I really appreciate your help!
