Slow frame rate on local reflectors

Hi!

I finally managed to get picture from my camera on a CU-SeeMe, using
miroVideo D1 capture card. For anyone, who had problems with a set-up,
a small hint. You must specify correct window size in Video Format to
160x120 pixels, because Cu-Seeme just can't set it up himself.
Go figure.

Now, another problem. I compiled a reflector on HP-UX 400, SGI Indy and
Linux (Pentium 100, ASUS Triton), started it, but frame rates are awful.
I get 1 or 2 frames per second, although we have 10Mbit network. HP is
on the same network segment, other two are connected across network
bridges.
Than I connected to a site in Norway (158.36.33.3)(I am situated in Slovenia,
University of Maribor), and got 80bps and a bunch of other senders who
all transmited with about 30kbps. Of course, I got booted of the reflector,
because they have 40bps limit. Anyway, can someone tell me, if there are
some special setup for faster packet transfer?

Reflector I am using is 3.00b3.

Greets,
Robert.
