Event Server

I'm not the authority on it, but I believe you're mostly right on how it
works. I might not be reading you right though. :)

Besides the event server on the display machine, there's also the display
resource manager on the display machine, the audio resource manager
(arm-eventlistener) on the audio machine, and video resource manager
(vrm-eventlistener) on video capture machine. All those *rm's get started
after the event listener. Though, when roaming through the virtual venue
rooms via the venues.accessgrid.org/AG pages, that'll start two other
small netscape windows whose content is associated with the mud.exe and
sdp.exe in agapps/helpers/. So those resource managers are things that you
start after event server, and then the virtual venues web pages will tell
those things what mcast addy to tune in to automagically.

And if that doesn't help, this is the place to ask. (afaik)
