[GnomeMeeting-list] ILS regregistration

My big issue is the lack of network reliability,
the fact I get thrown off my ISP regularly. I am
not worried about security since, people will have
trouble forging my voice even if they register as
me. It would seem that you could verify that the
host that was registered was still active, if a
new IP tries to register as the same user.  If I
was registered and do not respond to a ping then
you could use the new IP information.

Can we get a better error message? My log tells me
that I was successfully registered, not that the
server ignored my registration attempt.  If I knew
what was going on I would have choices to fix it.

Probably the best I can do, besides waiting 20
minutes to register, on my end is to register as a
different user with a similar name.  This
means that I will have several personas that I use
for registration and I would wish that the
gnomemeeting client would remind me which one I
was using.

I am not really sure what this means? If they are
unreachable why keep their registrations active?
