    Re: Vidio & Voive (XP Pro)

    Hey Cowboy, any error messages coming up on the screen? Are you using a firewall - and how do you access the Internet?

    Voice & Video

    I use Verizon DSL. I can hook up straight into Verizons Modem and it does not work with Video & Voice. I can send instant messinging but thats it. I can network my two computers through a router and use Netmeeting with Video & Voice but can't get out to anybody else.The router is a Comp USA NAT device. You set it up on the Web. My internet access is great & fast , but this stupid Video thing is driving me crazy. Its not like I just have to have it , but not being able to , still bugs me.

    Re: Voice & Video

    Are you using a firewall between your computers and the Internet? This would also include the Windows XP firewall, which is enabled by default if memory serves. Chweck your network connections from the start panel and see if it displays "Firewalled" for your network connection.

    Re: Voice & Video

    Form my experience, most NAT routers will give Netmeeting problems, due to the random port usage. However, i have had total success with Yahoo Messenger... Video works great both ways... No DMZing, no port forwarding.....
