I've been trying to connect my unix box to CU-SeeMe
reflectors using nv and vat. I've had much luck on
my own reflector, but none on anyone elses.

My questions are:
- how many of you reflector "owners" have nv-port
and vat-port assignments in your reflect.conf file?
- what are the port assignments that you are using?
- if you don't have these assigned, how about:
nv-port 4444 and vat-port 3456. I heard somewhere
that these were the defaults and that is what I've
set mine at.

If you respond directly to me instead of everyone, I would
be glad to compile a list and post it here when it looks


thanks for listening to me, I thought I'd reward you all
with a little humor, (not sure who the author is, I included
both names that were attached to try and give credit where
credit is due)
