We have a Windows NT 4.0 Server and Windows 95 workstations.

How can we use the MS NetMeeting on our internal Local Area Network? We use the TCP/IP protocol (a class C 192.168.*.* configuration) togather with the NetBEUI protocol.

We do have access to the Internet through a proxy server on the NT server (using a dial-up account).

Thank you.

You can use NM on your LAN which based on NT network. NM support LAN protocols TCP/IP and IPX, no suppot on NetBEUI.

Without ILS server, you may specify IP address or computer name (for IP network, you need WINS) when call the partner.

You may also install ILS server on your NT server, it is downloadable from http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload.

Moreover, make sure specify that you are using LAN connection in the bandwidth option.

As you mentioned, you use Proxy server dial-up to ISP for Internet connection, for MS proxy, you may install its client program, then you can NetMeeting with guys either on your LAN and Internet.

Thank you for the answer. Things are not quite clear. You say:

"Without ILS server, you may specify IP address or computer name (for IP network, you need WINS) when call the partner."

Our network is using a DHCP for assigning the IP addresses so I don't know which one to use. If I go by the computer name ... I still don't know at which computer my partner is logged on.

Also what is the connection with WINS?

WINS is Windows Internetwork Naming Service. Commonly, we use DHCP and WINS together, in order to access other computer with name in a DHCP environment.

To do this, just install WINS service on your DHCP server, and specify use DHCP for WINS on the client side. So, you may use computer names instead of IP addresses, even the addresses are dynamic assigned.

The manual of NT server (online or printed) all have a detail description on it.

Hope this help,
