I'm not sure how it works with Mavericks but with 10.4 Tiger you also
need to go to System Preferences | Network | and in the "Show" dialog
box activate the Key Serial and the  #1 or #2 Port (whichever you are
using)  checkboxes for the Keyspan Adapter port

It seems that I forget this or the NCX Preference 'most every time I
set up a connection (NO learning curve)

Good luck
