  • If I have AGTk 2.4 installed on my machine, do I need to reinstall Python 2.3?

    Yes
  • How do I find IP/port info for a given venue in the Venue Client?

    Within the Venue Client, select "Venue," "Properties." In addition to IP/port information, you will also find locations for text chat and data.
  • Add schedule - what is that?

    This feature allows you to subscribe to RSS feeds of meeting schedules. To subscribe, you will need the URL of the RSS feed.
  • How do we know what bridge to select?

    Sometimes it will be fairly intuitive. For example, if you're connected to the NCSA venue server, the NCSA bridge is a good choice. However, any bridge will suffice. If you switch to the bridge by selecting "use unicast" in the Venue Client, a bridge will automatically be selected for you.
