Cross-Platform Conferencing Software?

[ #18219 ]

Suddenly I'm getting a number of requests to do Bricolage demos via conferencing software. I tried to join a WebEx meeting yesterday, but it didn't like any of my Mac OS X browsers or the versions of Java they had installed (browser sniffing == bad!).

I'd like to use Mac OS X software to conference with folks using Windows and other platforms. I can use my old Windows 98 SE box if necessary, but I'd rather not. Anyone know what the options are for good cross-plaform conferencing, and what works and what doesn't?

Thanks,

David

  • Dave, If you don't need sound, maybe VNC would fit the bill? I have only used it 1-to-1, but this post implies 1-to-many works okay: http://www.realvnc.com/pipermail/vnc-list/2002-September/033645.html There's usually some port fortwarding to do on your side, but it's very simple on the client side - any web client can connect and use the applet viewer. Otherwise I would bite the bullet and fire up the windows box. It's just not a good idea to experiment with potential client demos.
