I am just at the other end of you. nv works for me but not vat.

To make nv work with a CUSEEME reflector, you need

1) A multicast-able OS kernel. I have patched SunOS 4.1.3 and it seems
work fine.
2) put a line something like
MC-TO-NV 1 224.1.1.1
in you relfector configuration file and restart the reflector. Where
224.1.1.1 is a multicast address I chose for the reflector to send
the packets to the multicast network.
3) Using nv to pick cu-seeme packets sent by the reflector:
nv 224.1.1.1 7650

Now it's your turn to tell me how you made VAT to listen to the audio stuff
on a Cu-Seeme reflector. Which version of the reflector are you using?
