It's NAT.  As currently designed, Coda cannot work behind NAT, because
the server will asynchronously try to talk to a specific port on the
client.  There are no provisions for associating different ports with
different clients, so you can run at most one Coda client per
server-visible address.

What I have done is set up a VPN ("private" is unnecessary for this
application, of course) and put the coda server on that.  I don't know
if you could have a single server on two nets, though, haven't tried
it yet.  Don't know why not, anyway.
