White Pine's Reflectors can handle up to 100 simultaneous unicast
connections. Multiple Reflectors can be "chained" together to reach larger
audiences. The new 2.1 Reflector (released early December '96) can use
standards-based multicasting to reach a nearly unlimited number of users if
your network supports multicasting.

Sun (SunOS/Solaris), SGI (Irix), Windows NT (Intel or Alpha) and Linux
(2.0.18) are the most popular platforms.
