Would let me say host a meeting with documents.. where I am scrolling through the documents and everyone else can see what I am doing in realtime. Sort of like a TS or Vent.. but for a presentation...

Only one I can think of would be VNC but I'm not sure how it would work over the Internet. I use it at work to troubleshoot PBX problems as well as access various workstations.

But all this is on our LAN/frame relay. I've used it through a VPN tunnel before with no problems but I honestly don't know what the bandwidth requirements are.

What it does is let someone see your desktop (and control it as well but I believe this feature can be deactivated). Also, I'm not sure how many users can be logged in at the same time.

If you Google it you should be able to find it pretty quick. It's free so don't let those websites trying to sell it snag ya.

Yes I am looking for something like that.. but I want to control the desktop myself.. just have others see it... Or I wonder if I had a website if I could host a real time thing like that?

Have you looked at Windows remote desktop? Might work out for you, but I expect that it is not exactly what you are looking for.

Well, I found the below on their website:http://www.realvnc.com/products/personal/

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">VNC can also be used in educational contexts, for example to allow a distributed group of students simultaneously to view a computer screen being manipulated by an instructor, or to allow the instructor to take control of the students' computers to provide assistance. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

So I think it will do what you want but I think you may need to purchase licenses in order to allow more than one person to view your desktop.

BC,

Have a look at a web service called Webex. It basically provides a web collaberation tool (one to many) with shared documents etc. We've used it for international meetings and it works very well.

As MarkGos said, Webex is one program that does what you are asking. Another is Netmeeting. I'm sure both of these require all the people to purchase software and it probably won't be cheap.

VNC works over the internet if the firewall is configured correctly. Can be a pain to get that through with somebody else. Other than than, VNC has proofen very helpfull for me.
