You have to use a reflector for multiple people to conenct to you, unless
you use the latest White Pine WINDOWS version of Enhanced CU-seeMe, version
2.1, which supports multicasting. I don't think the Macintosh version
supports multicasting yet.

Try Cornell University's CU-SeeMe home page at
and click on the link there for "What is a refelctor"
