As many of you may know I have been unable to establish a connection
with Cu-SeeMe. Most recently, I got Cu-SeeMe to run, but never could
establish up a connection with any of the reflector sites. It was
suggested to me that my network may have port 7648 blocked, so the
packets might not be getting through. I asked a friend of mine
to develop a server that checks incoming UDP requests at port 7648.
This server is on line and I used it to test my Cu-SeeMe and we can
tell that the UDP packets are able to get through (although it appears
that they are blank when they get there). We will leave the server up
for others to test. (The server simply captures the contents of the
packet including the IP address of the sender.) Others may test their
systems if they are having these types of problems (that Cu-SeeMe
starts, but they can't connect with a reflector) by attempting to
connect with 140.90.24.87. Then e-mail Joe Lang at
lang@apwk01g1.nws.noaa.gov. (Be gentle with Joe, I will be on leave
next week. When I get back we will be happy to help port the test
server to other systems.)

If this arrangement goes completely to pieces, I will be able to be
reached at my parents house at (619) 243-4255.
