Netmeeting: waiting for a response
Posted on 2009-07-13
I'm having an issue with a user who is using netmeeting.
When she goes to start a netmeeting, the first person is able to connect to her, however any subsequent person afterwords will try to connect and get a waiting for a response. The person hosting the netmeeting does see the "Accept" or "Ignore" dialog box, but nothing happens when it is clicked.
The weird part is that I was messing around with netmeeting (no configuration changed) on her machine, being the first person to netmeeting in. I saw her desktop and when a 2nd person tried to connect, she hit accept for that 2nd person and then I got prompted to either accept or ignore the 2nd person's connection. Is that the right functionality of netmeeting?
It doesn't seem right since I tested it with a couple other colleagues and we were able to connect to a single person with no problems. There was a slight delay at most.
I am going to try a uninstall/reinstall of netmeeting.
Firewall is controlled by group policy, so it "should" be allowed automatically.
Any other ideas/suggestions?
