Maybe I'm weird, but I was able to get CU-Seeme to work from the very first
installation, and I have a dynamic IP account.

At first, I wasn't able to appear as anything besides Tom Servo, but I fixed
that by editing the hosts file and naming my machine. I just used one of
the IP addresses that was assigned to me. Doesn't seem to matter if I don't
get that that same address again either...

Now if my provider would install some v.34 modems...
