could be...or, should i say, hope so (dunno what Polycenter is, but
sounds promising).

it's the tcp port the 90M should be listening on.  the idea is it makes
a socket connection to 'host' on tcp/ip port 'port'.  so, looks like
you're quite close.  if you can telnet to on a certain port
and talk to the console, you should be able to just point conserver at
it and it should work.  then you can think about the 'logfile' and
'timestamp' options.  ;-)

i hope this helped.  if there's anything i can do to help more, let me
know.  and perhaps someone on the list is using a 90M and can send you
any useful pointers.
