Hmm Bob, not much I can suggest except to say that I have experienced a
situation when one CU-SeeMe could call the other but not the other way
around. Why not try this next time. First connect to "Self" then when you
disconnect, take a note of your IP which is shown alongside the Disconnect
menu item. Call her by phone and tell her your IP and have her call you on
CU-SeeMe. You may find that this works. Why?? Beats me!
