NetMeeting works on my two computers connected to my LAN without any
problems. When I try to make connections with a computer outside my LAN I
get the Error Message “Cannot Make the Connection.�

The Belkin support technician recommends I change the NAT setting and use a
DMZ setting to bypass the router firewall. Will I also have to turn off my
Microsoft Firewall to get NetMeeting to make a connection? Microsoft’s KB
#158623 only mentions not blocking certain ports when using NetMeeting. This
who thing is a very unclear and confusing.

What exactly will it take to make NetMeeting work with Windows XP SP2 and
my Belkin Router F505230-4 and still have either a software or hardware
firewall working when using NetMeeting? I want to connect with some
security in place.

There is a netmeeting newsgroup - ask there.

I have no answer for you, but I have had Netmeeting available to an outside
location from either of my compters through a LinkSys router/firewall and
Windows XP Firewall with no problems for the past 4 years. I do not turn off
any of the security settings.
