Forwarding Mbone sessions to CuSeeMe participants

Hi All,
Here I have a tested solution how to forward a mbone session to CuSeeMe
participants without changing the reflect.conf file. Only the unicast parameters
should be defined.
NV sequence:
1) open the mbone session using nv
2) open the cu-seeme session using nv
3) set the cu-seeme nv encoding to CU-SeeMe.
4) set the cu-seeme nv grabber to X screen grab (fixed)
5) select the mbone window as the fixed area.
(This proposal is from David Schlussel; see:

VAT sequence:
Start VAT like this:
VAT -m mbone-ip-adr/mbone-port/DVI reflect-ip-adr/reflect-port/DVI
(see also the VAT man page for further parameters)
Start VAT on a separate Unix box!

I tried to start the NV and VAT sessions on one SGI box, but the VAT session
hanged up (why? I do not know?).

Is there anybody who has different solutions please e-Mail?
