no sound over Ethernet

A coworker and I both bought QuickCam's and have been experimenting with
CU-SeeMe. We have been having trouble with the sound. I have a Mac IIci and I
think he has a IIsi. As far as I can tell, I have never successfully
transmitted any understandable sound, which I can understand, as the ci has
no microphone input, and the Quickcam's mike doesn't seem too adequate. I
have SOMETIMES been able to pick up semi-understandable sound off the
reflector sites on the Internet. We have a 56K leased line. However, we are
not getting any sound at all when we connect directly to one another over the
Ethernet, which is when I would have expected it to work best. He does have a
microphone on his computer, so I'd think I could hear him. He has "Push to
talK" unchecked, and the threshold control pulled to the bottom. I have
receive (and send) checked. Any theories?
