    I hope I'm in the right forum for this question. I work for a company that would like to look into the possibility of using Windows 2000's built in NetMeeting program for a little bit of end user support. We in the I.S. department have just installed it and are trying a few things with it. My question is relating to Internet Directory Servers and ILS's. I'm wondering if we should setup our own ILS on our Intranet, and if so, how do we do that? Any links to good web sites would be great, also any personal experience. I think setting up our own would be a good idea. As I understand it, using MS's Internet Directory requires the use of MSN Messenger. Does it also mean you have to have a hotmail address? This is part of my confusion. Again, any help would be great. Thanks.

    Why would you want to use netmeeting? Because it's free? If you want a remote desktop and conferencing application there are lots out there that are more robust and easier to use.

    Rockn, if you know of better, free software that can do the same thing as netmeeting and that is as easy to deploy over a complete Win2000 network I'd like to know.

    basically, i want everything netmeeting offers. i guess the video conferencing isn't as necessary, but the chatting and whiteboard and remote stuff is necessary, as well as program sharing.
