firewall, and
their CUSeeMe is up and running), we use the return of a CGI call to
their database,

machine to
that IP's reflector.

a file works.

It seems like it needs more in the CGI return, or how it's returned. Do
you any ideas
as to what else is needed before the CGI is launched properly as an
