Hi, getting ready for the training.
Sorry if I'm emailing everyone, I only need one to response..Have three questions:

1. We have participated in this twice previously, using an older Polycom ViewStation H.323, updated to the latest software, 7.5.4.
Did not have any problems either time. 

It does not seem to dial higher than 768 kbps, and this year you are requesting 1 Mbps.
Is our lower speed a problem? We have a pretty clean connection to Abilene through Connecticut Education Network and guaranteed bandwidth on the Polycom.

2. I tried connecting to, the connection is fine, but DTMF 3546# gives me the message "Invalid Conference ID, try again"
I have a meeting until 12:45, so am trying to test before then. Is the room currently open? Not sure where the problem is.
I have tried to dial in both with GDS and IP, and am registered with the Commons Gatekeeper, our unit IP is

3. One of our participants, Edie Furniss, will be 60 min late. Is is allowed to record the conference, until she gets here, with an inexpensive camcorder, so she can catch up later? We will destroy the recording after she views it.

Thanks for all your effort and patience!
