Currently, the Macintosh version of CU-SeeMe does NOT support an automatic
connection to a reflector or to another user via a Web link.

It does support automatic start-up via a Web link (as does any other
Macintosh app.). This is done by making CU-SeeMe a "Helper App." and adding
the app type to your web server.

The automatic connection to a reflector via a Web link capability will be
part of White Pine's commercial version due out 4th quarter of 1995. We
even demo'd it months ago at the DVC show.

Cornell also has been working on this capability, but I don't know what
their plans are for releasing it in their public version.

This question is raised every month, maybe it should be folded into the
CU-SeeMe FAQ.

Stay tuned,

Bill
