I run a small, five (5) user, reflector on a LINUX box. The LINUX is
the Slackware release, kernel 2.0, and is very stable for my
application. The machine is a 200 MHz, Gateway, MMX box. The
reflector I run is Brian Godette's' Enhanced reflector v1.07b9, which
you can get at:

Brian has binary versions for many OS platforms available.

Good luck...

Hi everyone

I am writing from National Institute of Education in Singapore. The
institute is setting up a video-conferencing server using the Cu-Seeme
software. For the start, we intend to use an IBM PC compatible with an
Intel Pentium 200 MMX processor. I intend to install an Unix OS most likely
Linux or SCO Unix. Anyone can advise which Unix platform is better and more
stable? Also which reflector software should I use? For the beginning we
intend to start with 3 ISDN-2 lines and the campus backbone is FDDI

Any place apart from Cornell Univ I can obtain more info?

Appreciate all the help we can get.
