Chapter 15. Using NetMeeting > Desktop Sharing

Desktop Sharing

One of the neatest new features in NetMeeting 3 is the capability to control one computer from another. The user of a remote computer can take over another computer just as though he or she were in front of it. This is something that cannot even be accomplished using virtual private networking or other remote access services because, even though those features allow for a great amount of security and convenience, they don't let you operate the remote machine using that machine's GUI.

Using Desktop Sharing is much like using Norton's pcAnywhere32 for NT or RemotelyPossible32 from Avalan Technology, although those programs have more features. Once again, the price is right for NetMeeting, though you should note that only machines running NetMeeting 3 (or later) can participate.
