Unlike TCP, the UDP protocol that CU-SeeMe uses will not resend packets that
encounter errors during transmission. But what about data that travels across
modems? Don't modems do some error correction of their own that involves
resending data? Does the higher level protocol - TCP or UDP - control whether
or not a modem will resend data in error?
