not using vnc. See if there is a streaming audio format between your server
and viewer os and use that.

beep is the only sound that appears to be working somethimes. It must be
said, it is only if it is beep, not if it is changed to any other phony
Then, a repeated beep is not the intention of the beep. In fact, the beep is
actually a character (ascii value 8, 0x8, 010). THat is in display on a
terminal. As long as it it visible at that terminal, it is displayed. Since
it takes no space, there can be bilions on a single line.
So if you use a continues beep, best to send a <cr> once in a while to the
same termial to flush lines.

I think we discussed some of this before. The <cr> trick is something that
just came up. give it a try.

Well the protocol is. I think if there are a couple of honderd bell-s on
aline, the character-lookup and display can take a while.

Is there a reason for the continues bell? It might be better to attach a
sirene to the machine ;-)
