Connection problems at cyber cafes

I kept getting the message "unable to connect" when I was trying to
connect to my friend at a cybercafe in NYC from a cybercafe here in MPLS.

We tried for half an hour and it only worked a couple of times, each time
only lasting about one minute, then NYC would just freeze and then

Both of us tried to connect to each other to no avail.

I've read the readme files and nothing helped me out.

The people at the NYC cafe said that the problem was on our side.

I could not connect to reflectors from the same computer.

Anyway, I'd just like to find some _detailed_ info rather than generic
trouble shooting info.

So, any help would be much appreciated.

Mucho thanks,
