i never used osc myself, but afaik with osc you can only send messages
one way (client -> server). in a setup that you described here, everyone
needs to be a client and at the same a server, if all members want to
communicate bidirectional with the others. it's more complicated to be a
server (you need to open ports in the firewall and do portforwarding
with your router), that's why i think that some connections worked and
others not.

alternatively you could use a system that allows bidirectional
communication over one single connection. the maxlib-external for
example has the objects [netclient] and [netserver] for exactly this
purpose, so that only one of you guys needs to be a server.

if you are interested in doing music over the internet, check
http://www.netpd.org .  netpd is an environment, that makes it easy to
create you own patches to be used over the internet. i'd really like to
meet you in netpd and give you a short demo of its capabilities.
