slow response from a reflector may be due to network traffick
on your providers backbone

try connecting to a reflector that is truly local

It may also be load on your reflector machine (if its running other progs)

I have a Sun SPARC 2 reflector and have connected to a cu-seeme station
over a T1 and seen sustained rates of 200kbps and very high rates
for very short periods (955Kbps and 500fps)on a video stream which didnt
have any movement in the frame.

around 90kbps gives an acceptable monochrome video stream, at 200kbps
the audio is not too bad either.

> The problem (at least with mail from me) is taht I use a mime-complient digital signature using pgp as the application. Microsoft mail does not know how to verify the signature (doesn't understand type application/pgp) so saves the mail as an attachment. For me the solution is pretty easy - I won't sign messages to the list. But the general solution is for microsoft mail to understand the application/pgp mime type. I don't do microsoft mail on a regular basis, so perhaps it could be configured to handle this.

Is this a performance problem on the reflector end? I would think that I have all the bwidth necessary to get really good performance, but the result has been less than amazing so far. I would like to put up a reflector for buisness use here, but am hesitant to make the investment unless I can get some more resonable performance.
