CU-SeeMe and Open Transport (was: CU-Seeme demo sw)

This is a periodic repeat of a post concerning the easiest way to get
a PowerMac 7500 running with CU-SeeMe.

Does anyone know if there's a CU-SeeMe FAQ, and if so how I can get this
information into the FAQ?


To get CU-SeeMe to work on an OT (x500) machine, you've got to do the

1. Install OpenTransport COMPLETELY.

2. Remove from the Extensions folder the libraries named "Open Tpt Internet
Library" and "OpenTptInternetLib". These are the libraries that have the
code for mishandling dialup connections. Also remove the TCP/IP control

3. Make sure that you have MacPPP 2.1.1SD or later (I use 2.2.0a) and MacTCP
2.0.6 or later. Any version of FreePPP is fine. If you don't have these,
they're available in the usual places.

4. Turn off virtual memory.

This will permit AppleTalk to operate properly, but will supress OT's handling
of PPP networking.

Once I did all this, my 7500 was very happy to work and use built-in video
(with 0.83b2). If you try this on a 9500 or 8500 and have good/bad results,
please let me know what they were.

If you have questions or problems, please e-mail me directly; I will post
any necessary modifications to this procedure to the list.
