Actually, I found that by adding the following line to the .slirprc
file:

redir udp 7648 to 7648

that I could make a CUSM connection to the host machine
(Netcom at 192.100.81.125), and the connection was redirected to
my PC. I assume that there could be only 1 such redirect possible
per Netcom host...

ObByTheWay: Found another remotely operated camera. The Web page
at http://158.36.33.96/control.html controls the camera seen at
reflector site venus.ifi.unit.no. Look for the lobster hanging from
the ceiling: rotate right and look up...
