Here is a question. We want to setup video meeting with Webex. When a meeting host launch a meeting, where is the server of Webex ? Is it in the host computer or in Cisco ?
If all attendees are within a company (within LAN), it is possible to have the meeting without internet ? Thank you.

The WebEx service runs on Cisco's servers. It is not possible to have a WebEx if not connected to the internet even if the two computers are right next to each other on the same network.

Yes, i think you are right. but i also think in the beginning of the meeting the host have to login with Cisco. after that, the attendees maybe directly join the host without contacting Cisco. and then the host and attendees contact directly each other within the same LAN without contacting Cisco, otherwise all hosts and attendees in the world cost so much bandwidth of Cisco. Do you think so ?

Every WebEx meeting is running off of Cisco's servers. It is a Hub and Spoke model where all the info from the Spokes (attendees) goes into the Hub (Cisco) and then the server sends the info back out to the attendees.

What you are referring to is a version of a peer to peer model which WebEx does not offer.

There is no service that offers video conferencing on a peer to peer basis without Internet needed that functions without extensive setup or configuration on all computers involved.

I really don't think there would be an option to suggest, or at least I do not know of one.
