Gethostname() failed (11004)

We are trying to set up CU-Seeme version 34b4 to use Windows and
Trumpet Winsock, and are getting the following error message when
starting CU-SeeMe:

CU-SeeMe: Hmmm.... there may be a problem.
(!) Gethostname() failed (11004)

We've put a line like trumpet

in the ``hosts'' file in the Trumpet WinSock sub-directory, as described
in the cuseeme.hlp file, but the error occurs with or without this line.

Any help would be much appreciated. (BTW, I don't know if this is
relevant, but NCSA Mosaic seems to run okay with Trumpet set up this

Thanks in advance,
