Net Meeting link

By colin.mac ·
I'm trying to create a hyperlink to a pc on my private network on a website I've created that's running on a static IP, Windows 2000, Net MEeting running.

If my static IP is say 80.86.89.148 and the P.C. I want to direct the Net Meeting link IP is 192.168.0.2 how do I go about this ? I've played around with the speed dial options in NetMeeting but haven't been able to create a call to: that goes straight through to the private pc, the furthest i get is the static hosting pc.

I'm assuming I need to put something in the wwwroot folder that combines the link in my web page to the net meeting call on 192.168.0.2

Any help is greatly appreciated.

192.168.0.2 is a non-routable I.P. address. It cannot send or receive directly to the internet. The router this PC goes through handles all info to and from the internet. To send data to the PC, data is addressed to the router and the router forwards the data to the PC.

To elaborate further:

When you have NetMeeting operating on a machine that is behind a router, with a non-routable IP address, you cannot place a call to NetMeeting on that machine.

Just to confuse the issue, you can, provided your router allows it, and it is configured properly, make a call out from NetMeeting on that machine to another IP address, because, by doing that, the router assigns a port number to the PC with the 192.168.0.2 IP address so that return traffic is correctly routed to the machine.

But if an unsolicited incoming call is sent to the 80.86.89.148 gateway, the router/gateway has no idea where to send it on and it hits a dead end. That is the way that NAT provides basic firewall functionality.

The only way is to run NetMeeting on the static hosting PC

I was afraid of that, I've tried running Netmeeting on the static system already but the system can't cope with running Windows Media Encoder(I've got a live stream running) and Net Meeting at the same time, system resources can't cope with a live web broadcast and a Net Meeting stream at the same time. I can alter the USB bandwidth on the cameras so that both work on one system but once the system is rebooted it stops working and I get a system resource error.

Any ideas of any other software apart from Net Meeting that could help me out ?

Your router doesn't have port forwarding?
