Joe Lang and I have finally reached a configuration of the test server
that I feel is ready for mass publication. This server will receive
your Cu-SeeMe client request and log it in. It will then send that
packet back to your system.

To use the server, go into preferences and change the default name from
Tom Servo to your name. Then go back to the connect menu and select
connect. Change the IP address to connect to to 140.90.24.87 and hit
the enter key.

If a window pops up saying "cannot connect to host" then either our
server is down or you are having network difficulties (i.e. either your
network has the port blocked, or your client is not functioning).

Otherwise, your name will show up in the Cu-SeeMe window. You will
then get a message saying that your client does not understand the
video format of the server. This is Good! We are simply sending back
your connection request...it is not in a video format. THe advantage
of this approach is that you could write software (or use a data
analyzer to check the data if the packet gets corrupted). We would be
able to give more info if we had a more full description of the
CU-SeeMe protocol, but other capabilities can be added later.

If you have any questions or problems, please e-mail me at:
stingley@apwk01g1.nws.noaa.gov or call at (301) 713-0882 x104
