Patrick:

I looked around to see if I could find a external server where you could
download the latest CSD of DOSBOX, but have not found anything. It's hard
to tell what is only accessible by external users and what I have access
to internally within IBM. You might try looking on IBM's Web homepage
at http://www.ibm.com for the latest TCP/IP CSDs. If I come across any
other external server, I'll send you a note.

As far as the "no response" from the reflector sites, you need to make
sure that you have Internet access on the system you are using and that
the TCP/IP ports CU-SeeME is using (7648-7651 I think) are allowed to
transmit/receive across the network. If you don't have Internet access
or the port numbers are blocked then you will get the error message you
describe.

My reflectors are currently on this side of the firewall, so you can't
see them. I'm working on setting some of the reflectors open to the
Internet, but it will be sometime later this year before that happens.
