Brian,

Send me the IP address you are using and I will scan the packets you
sent to the test reflector *140.90.24.87* and see if they are ok.

When I try to connect, I can see data being sent to the reflector and an
equal amount is returned. This happens twice in the first few seconds. A
few seconds later my system sends out a small amount of data every few
seconds, but there is no reply. After that, I get a "Could not connect
to..." message. It does appear that the reflector is looking for me at a
different/non-existent location. Is there a way to have the reflector look
for me by IP number? Any ideas of what to try next?
