Hello David,

Sounds like it should work if you are getting video with QuickPICT or
QuickMovie. One suggestion though. Is your quickcam connected to your
printer port? If so, you may have a conflict between the printer port and
AppleTalk. Turning off AppleTalk can be a little tricky because it needs
to be done in two places under Open Transport. Try these steps:

1) Go to the Chooser under the Apple menu, and select 'AppleTalk: Inactive'.

2) Open the 'AppleTalk' control panel if you have it in your Control Panels

3) From the Edit menu, select 'User Mode'. Select 'Advanced' in the window
that comes up, Hit the OK button.

4) Now in the Appletalk window hit the 'Options' button. Select
'AppleTalk: Inactive'. Hit the OK button.

At this point, AppleTalk should be off... try launching CU-SeeMe again.

Good luck,
