To be correct, there is no ethernet support in CT - rather K1TTT wrote
software (nettsr) that replaces the comtsr driver that CT requires. It simply
packages the com port data in a UDP frame so the ethernet board can handle it.
No handshaking, or other fancy tcp/ip services, and no guarantee that it will work.
I got it to work on and off here at ka8okh a few years ago, but abandoned it for
NA serial networking. I wasn't comfortable with CT/nettsr's reliability.
