Already posted this on the computer section but need more people in at once - want to see how well it works under load and if it also works well for people behind firewalls, etc.

    yeah, I'm getting the same thing as Gavman. I don't think I'm behind a firewall, but I am using the internet from a networked computer, if that's got anything to do with it. The modem's not connected to this machine.

    edit: I'm running IE6 on telewest broadband

    Thanks guys - think there was upto 8 of us in he two rooms - worked really well just need to work out if this thing uses up a lot of my monthly Bandwidth allowance.

    Maybe if there's some PHP experts in here they can lend us a hand cos there were betterlooking chat programmes but they were way harder to install.
