Netmeeting is intended to be used on a LAN. Because of all the ports and port ranges necessary it is not really practical to do port forwarding with Netmeeting and it could even create a security risk. However the following article outlines the required ports:

If you need to use Netmeeting the best bet is to create a VPN (Virtual Private Network) and then you can easily use Netmeeting between remote location securely and without complicated port forwarding:

If you are using it for remote management there are other tools available as well such as those outlined in the following site:

Thanks jonnydollar. I hope the information regarding your options was of some help. I just noticed the link I posted for creating a VPN was wrong. If interested see:
