You can get the programs nv and vat to show cu-seeme streams
they are audio and video tools for unix.

this page: http://www.eit.com/techinfo/mbone/mbone.html
will provide links to resources on info for them.

you can use 'vat reflector.name.or.ip'
and 'nv reflector.name.or.ip <nv port number>'

to connect to reflectors that have vat and nv ports
assigned. i'm told most people use 4444 for the nv port.

TO ALL: PLEASE SEND ME YOUR PORT NUMBERS FOR YOUR REFLECTORS,
I WILL COMPILE A LIST FOR ALL
