Bill, I have the beacon running on a Linux box at Stennis Space Center,
crow.ssc.usm.edu and on my Win98 laptop, dsliman.otters.usm.edu. They both show up
on the web pages. I'm currently working on the main campus. When I bring up the
BeaconViewer on my PC, I get "Server reply error." I am going to recheck my
settings on our Cisco router to see if I put in anything wrong. Do you or anyone
else have any suggestions.
