Try the cornell site though I know the info there is a bit scanty...

>Or if anyone out there has successfully set up and is running a Cornell
version reflector, please let me know. I have no idea what default
directory (if any) the files are supposed to be installed into, much less
how to start the reflector once it's installed. I know how to set up the
reflector.conf file, since that's the only decent documentation that came
with the file.

For FreeBSD (though I guess most UNIX boxes are the same...)

Put the files where you like. Setup the reflect.conf file, put it in the
same directory as the reflect.* files and then use "nohup ./reflect.MC &"
(or reflect.NOMC for a non muliticast server) from its directory to start
it. It should show the settings on standard out and run. You can use refm=
to monitor the reflector.

If you get any problems drop me a line....
