Do you mean another person running CU-seeMe? Are they using the White Pine
version? Are you on a White Pine reflector? The Cornell version doesn't
support COLOR at all, neither the CLIENT, nor the REFLECTOR. BOTH sides
need to be using the White Pine Enhanced CU-SeeMe, and if you are connecting
via a reflector, the reflector must also be running the White Pine reflector
code for him to see your color.
