2 reflectors in same subdomain?

Hi folks,

With the help of several of people on this list (thanks again!), I managed
to get the multicast patches for SUN OS installed and the SUN up as a
CUSeeMe reflector in almost no time.

The problem is (maybe I missed something) that when we re-created the
kernel on machine #1 it worked fine, when we created the kernel on machine
#2 (in the same subdomain), it worked; but machine #1 now gives:

bind error port : Address already in use: FATAL ERROR: EXITING

whenever I try to run reflect. Is it possible (or just plain dumb) to run
two machines in the same subdomain? Does the multicast kernel creation
bind some port that both machines share, thus killing #1's binding when #2
compiles?

when re-creating the kernel, we put the machine's IP for:
Enter local tunnel endpoint address [128.32.163.118]:

We just hit enter for
Enter peer address providing tunnel:

Any ideas/suggestions are most welcome,

Thanks,

Tom O'Brien
