You both can use Windows live messenger, but this uses WAN, I mean if you have a internet connection, why not use it...

Windows Meeting Space is not on 7, and they removed the audio and video anyway... was supposed to be the netmeeting replacement.

No problem... there is skype as well, but I prefer WLM. It has awesome framerate and quality with noise canceling. Hope this helps, good luck.

I give up with WLM. First off my son (5 year old) doesnt have a Windows live account and i cant be bothered to create one for him.
It just seems so long winded.
The LAN option seems to be what i need so ill keep looking.
Thanks fo rthe help.

No problem. It only takes like 3 min to create one. I will keep an eye out for a LAN one, most of them seem to cost money.
