OK, let me try to clear some things up for you. The way you tell it, when
you start netscape, your computer dials into your provider. This probably
means that you use trumpet to do the actual dialing, and you are using
windows 3.1. Is this correct?

Yes, your ip is dynamic, if it changes each time. No, receive only
shouldn't be a problem. You only need to make a hosts file if CU-SeeMe
gives you the GetHostByName() error.

Your problem is probably that you are using the Cornell version, and the
default receive maximum is set to 300. You need to use notepad to open and
edit the c:\windows\cuseeme.ini file. Find the section labeled [flow] and
then on the maxrecv line, change the value to 28 for a 28.8 modem, or to 14
for a 14.4 modem. Set the minrecv to 5 or 10. This should help you a lot.

Also you might want to check my illustrated users guide on my web page for
more info.
