Hi Peter:

I expect you have your certificate by now.  Assuming you have it, you 

-  Import the certificate
-  Run NodeSetupWizard.py, to configure your node
    (you should have run AGServiceManager.py on each machine before 
starting the wizard)
-  Enter a venue
    You should see the media tools (rat and vic) start, which will allow 
you to interact with other people in the venue

The node setup wizard does much of what is described in the document we 
wrote to describe how to set up a room-based node.  You can find the doc at:

The doc was targeted at the 2.0 release, so does not reflect changes 
made since then.

I hope this helps,
