I would like to set up a video conference between two computers within the same network.  The computers are in different parts of my building.  Security issues are the reason for the need for the video conferencing.  One computer will be a desktop workstation which I would connect a web camera to.  The second computer will be a laptop which has a built in web camera in it.  Both computers are part of the same domain.  Can this be done internally in my network, or will I simply have to connect to something like Skype, oovoo, etc?  Thanks.

unless you have in-house video conferencing software already installed on your PC'S, the Skype solution is probably the best solution!

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

@PaulSauve. You're right. It sounded like they're on the same LAN. So, I thought they could something built-in

Use Google Hangouts. More fun (easier to add more people to the video conferencing). But whatever you choose, they will all work, even if they're on the same network.

Thank you for your responses.   I apologize for keeping this open as long as I have.   Due to the security of this system, we will be looking at an independent video conferencing software.  Thanks again.
