Incorrect setup. The reflector has a file called reflect.conf. You use it to
"configure" the reflector. If there isn't a line of the form:


Then you will not be able to connect to it using NV. As a limited time offer,
I've configured a reflector at with an NV-UCAST of 4444. I've
got an nv running from a sun doing an X11 screen grab, and a MAC with video
capture sending video to it. (I'm the worker bee...)

The command:

nv -encoding cuseeme 4444

ought to work for you.
