It's as if you are standing in front of the rtemote users screen watching what they are doing.

Netmeeting does however allow you to "Take over" the remote desktop as well BTW.

The two programs are for very different purposes.

I would consider using VNC or logmein if you want to remotely connect to pc. Both programs are free.

NetMeeting has been removed from Windows 7. Microsoft Shared View is the alternative for that. You can download it from the following link.

But there is also

LogMeIN
CrossLoop
VNC
TightVNC

to name a couple and a great many others.
Hi there
I think you may have missed the point here --the main purpose of Netmeeting ISN'T to be able to logon remotely as the user like logmein but to be able to SEE IN REAL TIME WHAT THE REMOTE USER IS TYPING ON HIS COMPUTER. You can also take over the session and release it again.

For remote support its an invaluable tool -- we are still using a Virtual 2003 Server just for this very purpose as there isn't any decent replacement yet --in fact the lack of this type of facility is hindering a switch over to W7 --we skipped Vista completely.

Cheers

Use Windows Remote Assistance

Please can someone correct me if I'm wrong, but this sounds like the exact purpose of Windows Remote Assistance, which has been built into windows since at least XP?
I was using it to view/take over other workstations in XP a fair few years ago. It is still very much in Windows 7; I use it to remote into my mother's laptop over the internet when she needs a hand.
It really surprises me the amount of people who don't seem to know about remote assistance and assume that Microsoft has abolished the functionality along with the defunct netmeeting. PC's have to be pre-enabled by someone with admin rights to be able to send RA invites/provide assistance, but this could presumably be done via active directory.

May have missed one in the discussion. Team viewer. Not exactly the same function as net meeting but far better than RA, and more known than crossloop, etc.

Plus it is free.

i have had 8 con current sessions going with no trouble.

Just one correction Ken,

Teamviewer is only Free for personal use, any company use would require a licence.

However I would suggest that the OP does give it a trial as the complete range of features provided would be ideal for their needs as I see them.

I use it in both local and remote, (over the internet), connections, for both assistance and remote control purposes.

The advantages with assistance to novice users that is provided by the full audio / video options are worth looking at also

NetMeeting LIKE in Windows 7

Click the START button.

In the "Search Programs and Files" text box, type the keyword "Windows Remote Assistance". Under the Programs heading, you will find that.
Click on that and follow the text.
After some 2 simple steps, it will create a file. Store that on your Desktop.

And then it will open a window and will generate a password. Copy that password and don't close the window.

Now, send the file stored to your other counterpart and ask him to open it.
And then ask him to type the password generated (DONT COPY and PASTE it).

Voila! the other person can see your screen with your permission.

But, I am not able to figure out on how to view the other person screen whom I have invited (using Windows XP).

Mine is : WINDOWS 7
Other person is : WINDOWS XP
