Cheers

Commented:
so youre asking why none of these things work with w2k?
If thats the case they should work,
Try loggin in as administrator or, expand the rights of whom ever you are logging in as.

I'll be here.

i am a member of the admin on the win2k and domain.  when i try and sign on to netmeeting it comes up with an error msg saying:
signing in to messenger service failed because the service could not be found.  make sure that you are connected to the internet.

Cheers

Commented:
It would seem there is either an installation problem or the domain has the net meeting port closed.
Try reinstalling/updating ie with all the latest patches including net meeting. That may help.


Good Luck!

we are running Proxy server and the only ports i have open on that are 25 for exchange and 110 for internet access.  but i cant get on to any chat sites or use netmeeting.

points incresed

Cheers

Commented:
If you have only Port 25 and 110 active that meens that you are unable to use Netmeeting and any other h323 compatible software simply because the client can not connect to server... Contact the admin of the proxy and tell him ehat you want. He will probably fix this if that is not the big security leak!

Dear moahmad.

look at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q158/6/23.ASP

There are all ports that you need to open to work with netmeeting.

But I open all of this ports and try to open all ports and I can't use Netmeeting, I thing that there are some problem using ADSL, because Netmeeting identify My computer with local IP 192.168.?.? and not with public IP (ADSL IP).

Can somebody help us?

QRT
moahmad,

If you are running MS Proxy Server 2.0, why not simply install the Winsock Proxy Client on your workstation?  This will allow you to bypass all packet filtering and give you direct internet access.  That way you dont have to open up other ports and causing any security risks.

BTW, As far as Yahoo! Chat and various web-based chats, some work off really off the wall ports and some work off the well-known IRC (Internet Relay Chat) ports, 6667 and the like.  Most all require a direct connection because there isnt any way to tell those chats to use a proxy server, other than if you're using the WSP Client.


HTH

Thanks,
Robert
