Can you be a bit more specific? Does their actual video window disappear
from the screen, or does their video just stop being updated? If you wait
long enough after this happens, do you get any kind of message saying that
the connection timed out? =20

I usually use 10/20 and 10/24 for my min/max transmit and receive rates,
respectivly. Having your rates set too high will cause timeouts. Keep in
mind that you can't send more than 28k on a 28.8 modem. The default rates
for the cornell version ar 10/60 and 10/60, so if you haven't adjusted them
accordingly, you can expect to have problems.
