Using NetMeeting to access a conference on an MCU

How do I use NetMeeting to get into a conference on the Cisco TelePresence MCU?

To navigate the Cisco TelePresence MCU's auto attendant using NetMeeting, go to View > Dial Pad. This brings up a key pad that can be used to enter the conference ID and PIN.

You can also enter conferences directly by registering NetMeeting and the MCU with a gatekeeper. If you don't have an existing gatekeeper, you can use the MCU's built-in gatekeeper. (See the MCU's online help for instructions on how to enable the built-in gatekeeper.) Then use the following steps:

  1. In NetMeeting, go to Tools > Options and click Advanced Calling.
  2. In the Gatekeeper settings section at the top of the Advanced Calling Options window, select Use a gatekeeper to place calls.
  3. Enter the IP address of your gatekeeper in the Gatekeeper field.
  4. Click OK and return to the main NetMeeting window.
  5. On your Cisco TelePresence MCU, go to Settings > Gatekeeper and register both the MCU and its conference with your gatekeeper. (Refer to the MCU's online help for more details.)
  6. In NetMeeting, enter the numeric ID of the conference in the Call number field.
  7. Dial up and you will be connected directly to the conference.

Alternatively, without a gatekeeper, you can call conferences directly using the following steps:

  1. In NetMeeting, go to Tools > Options and click Advanced Calling.
  2. In the Gateway settings section at the bottom of the Advanced Calling Options window, select Use a gateway.
  3. Enter the IP address of your MCU in the Gateway  field.
  4. Click OK and return to the main Netmeeting window.
  5. Enter the numeric ID of the conference in the Call number field.
  6. Dial up and you will be connected directly to the conference.
