Like I've always DOES work...just have to massage it a bit :)
(And I still dislike the reflector operators which boot anyone using
audio...The audio for any one participant can be shut off just like the
vid, so the "wasting bandwidth" idea doesn't make sense.)

Just a hint...If you're on Win95, use the updated Cornell 0.92b2
version..It's MUCH improved over the 0.84b7 version. And unlike White
Pine's product, it's backward compatible with the earlier 0.84b7 version.

I guess that depends on what your bandwidth is...but with a max receive of
40, you may end up getting disconnected if you open lots of people's vid
and you're only on a 28.8kbps modem.

I've always figured an mtu of 1500 would be much better (fewer fragmented
packets assuming each router along the way supports an MTU of 1500).
