5xp also supports vpn --- only 10 users by default, but that is the easiest
and the most secure way to have netmeeting with out a server.

cheers,

Greetings and thanks for the reply.


To give you folks some more details:

The NetScreen 5XP does not support a DMZ:Only trusted and untrusted
interfaces.

I have a ADSL router/modem. There is no NetMeeting server. What my client
would like to do is use the built-in netmeeting client in Windows to
"chat/talk(audio)/see(video)/remote control/share application with another
person on the internet with similar software. I believe this no-server
scenario can hold up 20 people in a single chat session. It is similar
when
one stars the netmeeting from MSN Messenger.

Cheers

Gill

Gill,


What is the layout of your network. Do you have a router and a firewall,
or
is the router acting as the firewall. If you have both, would it be
possible
to place the Netmeeting server outside of the firewall, between it and the
router?  Depending on the type of OS, ie Windows 2000 server, etc., there
are some filtering capabilities within the OS that will let you limit the
traffic to the server.

Just an idea.

Rick

I would think you could setup the NetMeeting server in a DMZ zone outside
of
the firewall, and then turn on keep state on the firewall to allow users
within the LAN to connect, but I am not sure about the keep state part.

Greetings,

As the subject goes, i need to get net meeting to work via NetScreen. I
found a KB
article(http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;158623)
but
it seems to show, i had to open a whole range of ports. I am skeptical
about
that!

e.g..
Pass through primary TCP connections on ports 522, 389, 1503, 1720 and
1731.
Pass through secondary UDP connections on dynamically assigned ports
(1024-65535).

the above shows a whole range of ports that i have to open. Is there a
work
around.

Kind Regards
Gill
