After complaining to anyone who would listen for the last four months about
the problems I was having with my Mac 7500 av and CuSeeMe software, I have
finally found the solution to the lag and freeze problems.

A hearty thank you to www.macintouch.com, where I found the antidote, and
to the good folks who just released Free PPP Version2. It completely
eliminates the drag I experienced in moving about the screen, the delay in
typing in the chat box and the inability to switch back and forth from the
Finder to other applications.

After downloading it from this site yesterday afternoon, I tested the
software on five different reflector sites and had excellent results on
each site.

Even windows users that I usually converse with noticed the difference in
my transmit rate and I measured an astounding throughput rate of 89,000 bps
using an external Supra 28,8000 baud fax modem as witnessed in the dialog
box of More Information, in the Open FreePPP Setup option.

I am currentlyl using Open Transport 1.1 and System 7.5.3 revision 2 along
with 32 meg of ram on the 7500 av.
