Hi, I want to use netmeeting on my home network to access other the computers
using remote desktop sharing. There are only 2, my own and my sons. I can
access my computer from his computer using netmeeting but when i try to
access his, a message appears saying that 'The person you called is not able
to accept NetMeeting calls.' he has no firewall, has service pack 2 etc, i
have zonealarm, but i closed that down and still it wouldnt work. i too have
sp2 (windows xp on both pcs.) anyone any suggestions to what is wrong.

Thanks

Why use NetMeeting RDS when you could use UltraVNC (if the PC you want to
access/control is running XP Home/XP Pro) or Remote Desktop (if the PC you
want to access/control is running XP Pro)?
