Subject: Re: remote learning using Mosaic
Note that Collage already provides capability without the use
of multicast IP (which is not supported at many of the routers -
we need to tunnel through the routers to run a wider area IP
multicast net here).  In any case, I do agree that this
could still be useful to try directly in Mosaic...
