I.P. addresses and Netmeeting

Hi Everyone,

I want to use NetMeeting to connect to a client's pc through the Internet.  His I.P. address from his ISP is 192.168.x.x.    This is a private address, isn't it?   How can I set up NetMeeting to connect to him?  Does he hve to change or forward his I.P. address to anything?

Your Client needs to publish his public IP.
This can be done with a dynamic DNS service like dyndns.org.

Another way is to let your client get his public ip by browsing to
http://whatsmyip.org/ or http://whatismyipaddress.com/.
Then he can tell you his ip and you can open a connection.

Maybe he has to adjust his firewall rules to allow such a connection to your host.
