Are you sure that the vic you are running is the same in both cases?  Once you have run vic on the command line, does it then work when you change venues in the client?

I think there was a change in later versions of vic that sent out packets when it started in order to open your firewall.  If you are running this later version from the command line, this could be opening your firewall and thus allowing the traffic in.  In this case, check your firewall is allowing incoming traffic on the appropriate ports and it should then work within AGTk without needing to run it on the command line first.

Subject: [AG-TECH] VenueClient and vic weirdness

    I've been experiencing some weirdness getting the VenueClient to
work smoothly on FC5 (Linux). Starting the VenueClient only I get
"Waiting for video" from vic either on multicast or unicast. However, if
before I start the VenueClient I open vic from the command line  with
the bridge address and port on unicast, start to transmit (with x11,
say), I can see all the various video streams. And on restarting the
VenueClient, everything works as it should!

I haven't tested rat yet.

This seems very strange. Is this a bug, or is this some network
configuration problem?
