NetMeeting Ports

September 23rd, 2009 No comments

NetMeeting is a brilliant piece of software. We use it at work all the time, for connecting to computers across the world or showing users in other countries how to do stuff. Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn’t think so, because I just tried to run it in Windows 7 only to find it isn’t included. Apparently it wasn’t included in Vista either, but was available for download after people complained. Hopefully the same will happen with 7.

Anyway, I’m posting because if like us, and pretty much everybody else, you have a firewall, you’ll need to open the following ports to accept incoming connections:

TCP: 389, 522, 1503, 1720 and 1731.
UDP: 1024-65535.

If you don’t believe me, it says so here:
