Trying to get started

I'm trying to get started with CU-SeeMe with my modest configuration to see
if it is worthwhile investing all the money required to do a full
video/audio transmission. I'm running CU-SeeMe version W0.70b1 and using a
Pentium 90 with SoundBlaster 16, a microphone, a 14.4Kbps modem (I'll get a
28.8 this week, I promise) but no video capture card or camera yet. I've
been trying to contact a reflector in the "CU-SeeMe Event Guide - Reflector
List" at http://www.umich.edu/~johnlaue/cuseeme/csmlist.htm, using their Go
CU-SeeMe Go! utility version 1.5 or just typing the IP address in the
Conference/Connect menu in CU-SeeME or just using the ones already defined
there. All attempts gave me a "No response from ...(whoever)". How can I
test-drive this with a tad more success? How can I make sure which is my IP
address? I'd love to use CU-SeeMe to contact my family and friends in
Argentina. Can anybody help? Sorry for the long message and the basic
questions but after reading all the .TXT and .HLP files I couldn't find an
answer.
Thanx
