I have setup my PC to run CU-SeeMe from the OS/2 Presentation Manager. OS/2 users; follow these instructions and CU-SeeMe does indeed work with the IBM DIAL UP TCPIP provided by IBM.

1. Ensure the following is contained in your config.sys:
SET ETC=d:\tcpip\etc
SET TMP=d:\tcpip\tmp
SET HOSTNAME=SteveB
SET SYSCONTACT=SteveB
REM ADDED BY STEVEB FOR TESTING
RUN=d:\tcpip\bin\ifconfig.exe lo 127.0.0.1 <===get the gravy cooking

2. !Importante! Your autoexec.bat should make *no* references to hidden winsock.dll's found amoung Windoze applications (I got'em, so do you). Keep it simple:
PATH=C:\OS2;C:\OS2\MDOS;C:\OS2\MDOS\WINOS2;D:\TCPIP\DOS\BIN;
D:\TCPIP\DOS\ETC;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM

Note: There are no references to LAN Work Place or other stacks.

3. Place binaries in directory D:\TCPIP\DOS\BIN\CUSEEME. I have resolv copied in there as well.

4. After you have sucessfully logged on to your internet provider, ensure you have entered you assigned IP address in the host file; I am assuming that PPP is being used (SLIP users should hard code their address):
199.227.1.172 SteveB

For quick access, copy EDITOR to the folder that contains CUSM and point the working directory to :
D:\TCPIP\DOS\ETC\HOSTS and the parameters to HOSTS.

5. Start CU-SeeMe.

For those interested, I am purchasing a camera and video card and will report on the results.

Have FUN - That is what we are here for!
