  | kre@ disagrees with me about it being wrong;

Only mildly, I can see your point.   My reply was sent before I
saw yours.

  | the mbone was a particular overlay network, a social phenomenon,


  | My point was just that the basic system routing support was not
  | "mbone", but simply "multicast routing".

Also agreed.

Don't bet on it.  Some of us are inherently lazy beasts...
(I, even now, use phone calls to talk within the house,
could easily just walk and talk, but that's work!)

But that wasn't mbone, which as you have said, was one
particular overlay network (almost a vpn, but only for
multicast).  I wonder if the nasa satellite images are
still being broadcast?  Anyone know?

  | It was talking to people at other sites that was a big deal.
