Hello,

<I'm new to this system, so let me apologize in advance if this is the wrong
forum for addressing this kind of problem. But, if you can help (or point me
in a direction) I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.>

On 4/2, I successfully FTP'ed CU-SeeMe for Windows (W0.34b4) to my PC from
gated.cornell.edu.

I unzipped the file ok, launched CU SeeME ok, but when I tried to CU SeeMe
connect to sites in the pull down list, I always get the message " no
response from ... ". I entered my own IP address as a CU SeeMe connection
(just to see if I could get any kind of a response) and I saw the default
user name Tom Servo with the [x] lurker designation appear.

I was hoping you might give me some help. My limited goal now is just to
verify that I can indeed receive video with the software I installed. I
don't have the hardware to send video yet.

If you are not the correct contact for this kind of problem, please let me
know or forward my request to someone who might help. Thanks in advance.

DETAILS
***********
- I unzipped the file ok.

- I already had msvideo.dll (124,416 11-19-93 8:00am) in my windows
directory, so I renamed the unzipped msvideo.dll to cuvideo.dll

- I ran cuseeme.exe from windows and it lauched ok.

- I tried to connect to nysernet.org (192.77.173.2) assuming that if I went
to a public reflector I might be able to receive some video to verify that I
had installed the software ok. All I got was "no response from ...".

I'm using Netmanage Chameleon v4.5 and
I checked my TCP/IP connectivity by pinging nysernet.org and the ping was
successful.
and during the same session
I used Netscape to successfully attach to the CU SeeMe World Wide Web site.
There I found a list of other public reflector sites.

I tried to CU SeeMe connect to Hawaii U (128.171.171.10) and got the same
"no response from ..." message, although ping was successful.

I also tried to CU SeeMe connect to SPRINTLINK (199.0.55.90) and got the
same "no response from ..." message, although ping was successful.

As a "try something" attempt, I tried to CU SeeMe connect to my own PC's IP
address and I saw the default username Tom Servo and the [x] lurker
designation appear.

I read your readme files and the unzipped *.txt files but I couldn't find
any hints there I could use.

I used the Chameleon Custom (NEWT) icon to verify that my PC had a hostname
and it does <mjasiewi>.

Hope you can give me some hints on how to verify that I've installed the
software correctly and that I can receive video.

Thanks
