***** HELP NEEDED! *****

Hello, I've been having a few CU-SeeMe problems that I was hoping someone
might be able to help me with.

I've got the Enhanced CU-SeeMe in demo mode right now, and have a 28.8k
modem. I dial up into a PPP account, or a shell account using SLiRP -
depending on which I connect to first.. I have my receive in CU-SeeMe set
for MIN: 1 MAX: 28 and my transmit is set for MIN: 1 MAX: 18 for the video
stuff. The audio, I don't use. I've really got two problems..

1. A *lot* of times, I'll type in the IP of a reflector to connect to, and
I'll get the "Contacted" message, and then on those that have various
conferences, I'll get the conference menu to choose which one I want, and
then it will say "Connecting to..". Then it just sits there. Finally, it
times out and gives me the "No response from.." message. Now, the strange
thing is, the people that are ON that reflector see a window pop up for me
as if I was connected. Nothing comes across the video (just blank gray
screen), and I never see anything except the "Connecting to.." message.
Also, if I have the Chat window open, and type, the people on the reflector
can see my messages. But I can't see them. This happens alot. I've tried
lowering my send rate as low as 5 and that didn't help. I've also changed my
conference setting to only allow 1 window open, and I've also tried
connecting with no video sending, and with no video receiving. I've also
tried restarting CU-SeeMe, and even restarting my PC. Doesn't really help.

2. Once, I was using CU-SeeMe, and could see everyone, and everyone could
see me, and I could see everything that everyone typed in the Chat window,
and I could see what I typed in the Chat window, but nobody else could see
what I was typing into the Chat window. They could see what I typed into my
video window however. Thinking this was just a problem with this particular
reflector, I went to 2 others. Same problem.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing either of the above?
Here's more detailed info on my system:

QuickCam (B&W) For PC/Windows
486/100 w/32mb RAM
1024x768 w/65k colors display
28.8k modem
CU-SeeMe Enhanced

Thanks in advance!
