We have two machines with LWP 4.2 and CUSeeMe. They are connected to
a 4MB Token Ring that passes through CISCO routers to get to the outside.
We have seen both good and low FPS depending on the source and the data
rate between us. We have seen very slow response with the Novell MPR
product however.
