Alternative to office communicator with screen sharing

I am looking for an alternative to office communicator that I could use to connect to my accounting clients to give them support.  Office communicator would be great however the prices are just to great for the amount of users that I am looking at.  I only need chat and screen sharing.  Any suggestions for a free or low cost option that I could install on my server and host a private online network for my company and clients?

We use a programme called NetOP, works very well, but i'm not sure on the costs by comparison to OCS.

I would suggest either Adobe Connect or maybe even better, TeamViewer.

I already use logmein free account but one has to step the client through the setup process.  I am looking for something like office communicator that you can initiate a chat session first and then if you need to bump it up to a screen sharing session.

Office communicator does the following
Chat > Screen Sharing > Phone Call > Webcam

All I need is to start with a chat and then bump it up to a screen sharing session.

Anymore suggestions.                       Office communicator is great just to expensive!

Skype 5.0 has integrated screen sharing with the video call feature.

Recommend GotoMeeting and/or GotoAssist. You can invitte client thru email message and all they need to do is click the link to join your meeting. Then you can then turn on Screen Sharing and have chat window. I have used GotoMeeting with clients around the world and Screen Sharing is pretty good. Its about $50 a month for subscription.
