Dear CU-SeeMe Expert Users,

I'd be most grateful to learn a few fundamentals on CU.=20

1. Is it sufficient to have CU-SeeMe version 0.92b2 installed in two
machines to allow communication between the two of them through the
Internet if both IP addresses are known? Or does the communication need to
go via a reflector? I have perused through the manuals and have learnt that
the reflector is for multi-point communication. Nothing is said about
point-to-point communication.

Just out of curiosity...There's something odd about your email
client...usually when I reply Eudora puts the original message in with > in
front of every line. which client are you using?

I've just setup a web page for people like you who want to connect directly
with a friend. Check my Web Internet Location Service page (ILS). What
you do is log on by entering your nickname, your email address (use your
real one so your friend can find you) and makup a password to be used for
this service.

When your friend is ready to connect with you, he/she can go to my ILS page
and enter your email address into the proper search field, and your IP
address and the time you logged on will be displayed. Your friend can
hilite your IP and click on Edit/Copy, then go to CU and edit/paste the IP
into the phonebook to connect to you.

When you're thru using CU, go back and log off so others can tell that
you're no longer available. This isn't absolutely NECESSARY, but if
someone else searches for your email address, they will be able to see that
you aren't connected any more. If you forget to log off, then the next
time you log back on, your IP address and log on date/time will be updated
in the database.
