I haven't sprung for a camera yet -- want to make sure this really
works, etc. I have tried using the Cornell software at work, 100 Mhz
pentiun on a T1 line, and it seems pretty good, can occasionally see
0% packets dropped. I have tired from home on a 120 Mhz pentiun with
a 28K telephone conn. through IBM.NET (ISP). very high packet loss
numbers, even when just having one visible user. Is there some
settings I am missing to have the cornell software not make newcomers
"visible" users automatically, and what can I adjust to get lower
packet loss?
