Reflectors and Firewalls

Hi there,

I just discovered CU-SeeMe. Could be a nice alternative to MBONE (IMHO).

I'm sitting behind a firewall. We use SOCKS to connect to the Internet. The
reflector binary I have compiled (HP9000/712, HP-UX 9.03) seems to work. At
least I can connect from a PC running version W0.65b1. Also the reflector
binary is "socksified".

Now as I understand, I have to find a reflector in the Internet which would
allow me to get some feeds from it.

So my question: Does this also work through a firewall? With a socksified
reflector binary, I think it should be no problem to open a connection to
any reflector site. However, other Internet sites will not be able to open
a connection to my reflector.

So does cu-seeme still work this way??

Thanks for a pointer

Regards

Daniel
