The Cornell reflectors have endian problems with nv coming from some
platforms. Try the most recent Cornell version, and if that doesn't
resolve it (I wouldn't bet the house on it) you'll have to spring for a
White Pine license. Brian O'Shea has fixed the endian problem in the
commercial version.

It would be interesting if someone at Cornell could update the group
concerning the possibility of a maintenance release for the free reflector
that just fixes bugs. I bet they could even get some advice from WP on
that. I understand that the author of the freeware reflector, Tim Dorcey
has moved on to greener pastures, so it may take a volunteer from our
community to tackle the problem.
