We also have Sun NFS, this is was a real pain with old versions of CU-SeeMe,
but the last version works ok for me. The 386 is slower than my machine, so
you may still need a beter Winsock eg. Trumpet, which worked for me with the
old versions.

This implies that your PC does not know its own name. Do you have a HOSTS
file in the NFS directory?
