Demonstrating a MS Access database to people - via the web

I have a rather extensive Access database that I supply to clients.  I would really like to be able to allow these clients (and prospects) to see a live demonstration, or a solution, whilst chatting on the phone (basically seeing what I see).

I only have a laptop at present, but am happy to upgrade.  I just want to find a low-cost, reliable, easy to run system.  It must be able to allow the person at the end of phone to be able to quickly log on via a browser - so that you don't waste anyones time.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A Google search for Screen sharing or desktop sharing will give you a lot of answers.  Some are free. some are subscription. some are pay as you go.

Some solutions will require software on both the viewing and serving side or will require you to poke holes in your firewall.  Many are hosted solutions.

http://glance.net/ is a very popular subscription service that does not require installation on the viewer side

I have heard that live look ( http://www.livelook.net/index.asp ) is pay per minute, and requires no install on the viewer side

http://www.unyte.net/products/unyte.php  has free and subscription.  IBM bought this company to incorporate into Lotus

http://www.nchsoftware.com/screen/index.html  looks promising but I've not used it.  You would need to have a port open to the internet for it, but it is free.

https://secure.logmein.com/home.asp?lang=en  has a hosted, free solution to desktop sharing that I've used before.  It is also for remote control.

Let us know what you choose.
