It allows you to see what it on your machine or share applications only if
you give permission in the NetMeeting sharing dialog box.  Note that even
when I host a NetMeeting, I use the regular NetMeeting program, not the
Server version that reportedly has significant security problems.

Is eMeeting free?  If so, this may be worth trying.  Anyone who has
Windows on their machine has NetMeeting.
