Re: WinCU and Trumpet over PPP

As anyone succeeded to run CU-SeeMe windows over a PPP with
Trumpet winsock 2.0.
I have no problem with Chameleon and the above setup but cannot
get Trumpet to pass the hostname to CU.

Before some of you may say "an other hostname silly question" take note
that I had no problem using, at work, CU-SeeMe with an ethernet connection
on a PC and with the Chameleon PPP setup. I tried everything under the sky
and have a good understanding of all the parameters involved in starting
a PPP connection.

The Trumpet People referred me to their user groups at their NNTP server
"" but one can read but not post ( at least I can't)
on this server so its back to square one.

I found also that Winvn (a windows news reader) cannot forward articles
to a mail address (SMTP) for the same reason: error in function ...gethostname

Any suggestion will be welcomed

Thanks in advance
