> So not all reflectors can support nv?

Expect endian problems on some (many?) platforms if you try the Cornell
reflector. Also, be aware that nv doesn't understand conf id's > 63. WP
is more reliable for nv use. Also, nv doesn't have an OpenContinue
command, so the only way it can tell the reflector it is there, even a rcv
only reflector is to send a stream of packets to the reflector. If that
stream is interupted for some reason, or is intermittant, the nv client
will pop in an out. A little ingenuity on the part of the reflector
designers could improve this for future releases.
