a tool to replace microsoft NetMeeting (need to allow to connect to polycom center with IP)

Hello,
I need to connect to another conference call center in order to preform a conference call
Our team abroad has a POLYCOM center
my colleague told me that once before long time he connected to this polycom center by IP, he used  microsoft NetMeeting , he configured the POLYCOM IP in the NETMEETING CLIENT and they succeeded in creating a conf-call.

Microsoft NetMeeting is not available for windows 7..

does anyone knows any other free solution that i can configure in it an external IP of polycom, so i can create a conf-call ober the internet ?

Microsoft NetMeeting is a feature of previous versions of Windows that is not available in this version of Windows.
 Instead, consider using Windows Meeting Space to collaborate with other people, share documents, and make presentations.
Open Windows Meeting Space by clicking the Start orb, click All Programs, and then clicking Windows Meeting Space

or Microsoft Office Live Meeting. very similar to net meeting

Windows Meeting Space works only over peer-to-peer IPv6 local networks, not the internet, only has collaboration features and lacks NetMeeting's conferencing features,

i'm looking for a conferencing client that i can configure in it an external IP of POLYCOM CENTER to make it part of the polycom conference ...
do you know something like this ?

sikadmin, as I see it,
since you wish to connect to Polycom you need to use their protocols and software, times have changed since the free netmeeting, there is still lots of free so long as both ends are using the same public domain/ internet access.
there is the
Polycom People+Content IP
The Polycom exclusive People+Content IP allows you to share content when connected to their organization’s network.
A small application is installed and runs from your computer.
Simply connect to your Polycom HDX or RealPresence Group Series via the system’s IP address and press connect.
Instantly start sharing content and keep everyone on the same page!
Download this FREE software under the Resources tab and start sharing content today.
