White Pine 3.x also provides the capability to set indivial transmissione
rates for each reflector. In the phonebook, you can either have reflectors
use the default rates set up in your profile (which are set up according to
the modem speed which you enterred during install), or you can check the box
to use specific settings you define for each reflector. In addition, you
will also need to select the box which states "enforce minimum send/receive
settings" (or whatever the formale name of this option is), and define your
minimum and maximum transmit settings.
