Hi .. small problem , but annoying;
More often than not , when I attempt to connect to a
reflector , I get a NO RESPONSE FROM message.

generally speaking, are these sites on permanent IP's ,
and do they run 24 hours , or is it an individual choice?
( when I connect to Indiana Univ. , I always get a connect,
and the program runs normally , suggesting the Software is fine
but the reflectors are giving me trouble.)
