Brett,

I posted a reply earlier but I believe that I only sent it directly to
you. Let me try to paraphase the questions and send it to the
discussion group:

I contacted my internet provider (Netcom) and they tell me that port
7648 is indeed behind a firewall. Are ALL Netcom users restricted from
using Cu-SeeMe? Is there a way around this firewall?

I am very frustrated with this. This may be enough for me to look for
another internet provider, though I have been please with Netcom so
far, this may change things.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
