Installation instructions for CUSEEME for OS/2 Presentation Manager
Below.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
OS/2 Update Notes:

1. Connectix Quick Cam works *very* well with the OS/2 PM and Cornell's version of CU. My wife
of course, who I share the computer, "hates that cyber-ball" staring at her. :)
2. FixPak 17 from IBM will not effect the functioning of CU.
3. After 3 weeks of diagnostics with White Pine's version, I have finally figured out why it crashes
WIN OS/2 sessions. You must turn off the "click" noise option for all preferences in the
box selections - minor detail, big delays. I ordered this version too. It is well done, and can work
from the PM as well.
4. I have completed testing on Warp Connect (LAN) versions. The same setup below applies.

Steve.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have setup my PC to run CU-SeeMe from the OS/2 Presentation Manager.
OS/2 users may follow these instructions and CU-SeeMe does indeed work with the IBM
DIAL UP TCPIP provided by IBM - Warp Connect too.

1. Ensure the following is contained in your config.sys:
SET ETC=d:\tcpip\etc
SET TMP=d:\tcpip\tmp
SET HOSTNAME=SteveB
SET SYSCONTACT=SteveB
REM ADDED BY STEVEB FOR TESTING
RUN=d:\tcpip\bin\ifconfig.exe lo 127.0.0.1

2. !Importante! Your autoexec.bat should make *no* references to
hidden winsock.dll's found among Windoze applications (I got'em,
so do you). Keep it simple:
PATH=C:\OS2;C:\OS2\MDOS;C:\OS2\MDOS\WINOS2;D:\TCPIP\DOS\BIN;
D:\TCPIP\DOS\ETC

Note: There are no references to LAN Work Place or other stacks.

3. Place binaries in directory D:\TCPIP\DOS\BIN\CUSEEME. I have
resolv copied in there as well.

4. After you have successfully logged on to your internet provider,
ensure you have entered you assigned IP address in the host file; I
am assuming that PPP is being used (SLIP users should hard code their
address):
199.227.1.172 SteveB

For quick access, copy EDITOR to the folder that contains CUSM and
point the working directory to :
D:\TCPIP\DOS\ETC\HOSTS and the parameters to HOSTS.

5. Start CU-SeeMe.

HAVE FUN - Hope to CU

SteveB
