I'm sorry if this is pointless, but WHY do you need full-duplex
audio? I can understand if you are wanting to do testing, but that is in
the configuration set up for a reflector.

It seems to me to be a waste of bandwidth to have full-duplex.
Perhaps I am getting confused.

My understanding of the word Full-Duplex is that every packet
that you send is sent back when it is received at the destination.
Doesn't CuSeeMe use UDP? The whole idea of UDP is a simple, very fast
protocol without all of the error checking overhead.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
