Hi,
As of Sunday, I downloaded CSM for Windows....Am using the documentation that
I pulled down from your site.

Have put CSM in its own directory (folder--Win95). Added winsock.dll (I got
from another piece of sw) to the same directory....I have a P/166 PC, Win95,
2 gig, Soundblaster, CD-Rom etc.

I am using AOL to access the I/Net. The steps I go thru to test CSM are:

1. Start AOL
2. Start CSM
3. Click on Conference; then Click on Connect
4. I then enter 132.236.91.204 (in the box that asks for an IP address or
connect......I get an indicator msg saying it is "waiting on connection".
5. After 5-10 seconds I get a msg back saying "no response from
132.236.91.204".

I'm not sure I'm doing this right. I have also entered various connection
data that came as part of the "Connect dialog box". I get the same error
msg.

Several things come to mind which may be my problem.
1. AOL is not the correct connection medium (ISP)
2. I am not correctly formatting and entering the connect address. (maybe I
need http:// as the first part of the connection site eg.,
http://132.236.91.204.
3. Maybe all is fine, its just that the site is not available. I just don't
know what to do!

What I'm trying to do is:
1. Test CSM without buying a camera. If it works, then I buy the camera or
a video card and use my camcorder.
2. Learn

Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.....

Best Regards,

Bill (Dallas)
