I came across this problem a while ago, and that was with an old
reflector (Which BTW I have the source for)..

The Cuseeme/NV encoding in the Reflector is ENDIAN specific
(much like the problems in the NV program itself) and hence
you can ONLY speak to reflectors on Sun's etc.

I don't believe white pine has fixed this problem, as I think there
are no sites running reflectrs on PC's doing the NV stuff.
