Yes they are.   CAP uses IP style dotted octet numbering, the CAP net number
is 133.39 not 133.   133 * 56 + 39 == 34087.

The two entries shown above, one from netstat (reporting on netatalk) and
the other from atlook from CAP are reporting the exact same entity
(net number 34087 (133.39) node number 125, and socket 4).

And this one from your PC tool ...

is the same thing.

It does look from the messages extract that there is some kind of routing
problem, you probably need to be looking at the routing tables in the
fastpath as well.   A common appletalk config problem however is attempting
to change the config without completely restarting everything (simultaneously)
which could have the old config in it (appletalk routers that is).  Especially
with respect to zone information, the appletalk protocols are just a fraction
light on time to lives, and such, but cache data nevertheless.
