Sounds like you did some homework, at least. What tcp stack do you use?
trumpet? Chameleon? What dir is winsock.dll in? what dir is the hosts.
file in?

Your DNS is NOT the number that needs to be in the hosts file...your IP
address is what needs to be there. The hosts file shouldn't be in the
cuseeme dir, but in the same dir that winsock.dll is in.

I have a section on my web page that might help you with this. If you don't
get it figured out after reading that section, let me know and I'll try to
help you get it fixed.
