Sounds like your tcp services are bound to the loopback device
( This is reachable from your linux box but not from
the outside. If you have your tcp service listening on port 9090
you can have a look at a linux console. Just type:

#> netstat -atn | grep 9090

If you get something like this

tcp        0      0*

then your tcp service is bound to loopback and can't be reached 
from outside this host. I can only speak for the usage of seaside 
which is using KomHttpServer as HV2 I guess. Most of the people using
one of these are using apache, too. In a common scenario apache is
reachable from the outside and apache connects your squeak instance
(like you do with konqueror from the linux box). 

I took a quick peak and only found

Try to specify the interface address (usually is I don't know
but it may help.
