No, the audio in CU-SeeMe works fine with the reflector running on a Sun, but
using Maven as an audio-only client doesn't work. As John Lynn said in a recent
post, the MAVEN configuration parameter has been renamed to VAT_UC_PORT, so
putting MAVEN in the reflect.conf will return a Bad CODE value. Unfortunately
the latest version of Maven doesn't seem to work with the reflector's
VAT_UC_PORT parameter. I'll cast my vote in favor of returning this feature to
the reflector, but a newer version of Maven that recognizes vat id list messages
would seem to provide better interoperability. Does anyone know if the new
"Internet Phone" applications that run under Windows interoperate with vat or
Maven? It would be great if they could all talk to one another.
