Recently resolved this problem myself. Try this:
Start up "Custom"
Host Administration
Type in your Domain (not host) name.
I also have the SNMPD startup box checked but I'm not sure if that matters.
Good Luck,

I know that I've seen this subject before, but now that I'm finally
got some time I am trying to get CUSEEME working.

When I execute CUSEEME.EXE, I get "GetByHostName() failed (11004)" message.
I've got a "hosts" file in my NetManage directory. My own hostname and
IPaddress is listed. I can Ping my own node by hostname.

What's the secret to getting passed this message?

I've got the following configuration:
Windows For Workgroups 3.11
NetManage NFS 4.0 (up an running )
VideoBlaster. (up an running )
MS VideoForWindows 1.1a (I can create AVI files)
I got REFLECTOR running on a SPARC workstation on our ethernet.
I am able to run REFMON.
CU-SeeMe for Windows version 0.34b4
