The machine is not a real pedal to the metal kinda machine but it
does have a fast network connection.

It is a 486DX33 connected to a 10baseT local area network. The 10baseT
has routers connected to the Internet via several high speed FDDI
circuits. I never know where the packets are being routed to/from but it is a
realitivly fast link.

The system is running NetBSD with 8 megs of ram (I will be upgrading
that shortly). I hope to have the system upgraded to a Pent. 100 in a
few weeks.

I have also had a few problems with the reflector, it does not like
the ALLOW command in the reflector.conf file. I had to remark it out.

I am having the same problem with connects as you describe.
The Cornell version of CuSeemee does not always seem to
hand-shake with the reflector correctly. I will get the Connect
message and then get an error message saying server not responding.
If i attempt a connect, abort it, then try it again i get connected,
but no welcome message is shown. No really sure why. I also am
woundering if the White Pine version does the same thing. If anyone
has any ideas, let me know.
