What trick would be involved in sending something "out" from the
reflector to initiate sending from a remote machine. I'm trying to make
some remote systems around our province be a bit more Internet friendly.
They'll be used for teaching sessions supplying video only from remote
sites. Connectivity is the problem. If I could disconnect and connect
to them only when the sessions are on the others using our frame-relay
cloud would be much happier.

They are set to auto-send. I just need to hit them with that initial
packet (s) that will tell them the reflector wants a conversation with
them. Is that a difficult thing.

Surely anyone wishing to have cameras at remote site with
"low-maintenance" would be interested in this idea!
