Microsoft NetMeeting is a Windows-based application that enables multi-user interaction and collaboration from a single PC over the Internet or an intranet. Clients or gateways can connect directly with one another, if the destination IP address of the other client or gateway is reachable.
There are no specific requirements for this document.
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
Cisco AS5300 with T1 PRI Controller Card
Cisco IOS® Software Release 12.1 and later with IP Plus
Microsoft NetMeeting Version 3.01
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
