Okay, so I'm a techno-neophyte. I've installed Netmeeting, and I want to use it
to call a friend's phone in another state. Following the directions in the help
guide, I went to advanced options and selected gateway, typing in my own
computer's name. When I tried to make a call, I got a message that I'm trying to
call my own computer, something I can't imagine anyone wanting to do, seeing as
how you're usually sitting in front of it and don't need a fancy program to cuss
at it just fine.
I looked around, but I can't find anything that will tell me even the most
rudimentary basics, like: what the heck is a gateway, or a gatekeeper, for that
matter, or a MCU, assuming I want to talk to more than one person at a time
(well, the program is called NetMEETING for a reason, isn't it?). Why do I need
these things, and how do I get one or more of them?
Please, assume you're talking to a five-year old. Not because I am; I just feel
like one right now. If you can tell me where to look, I'll be happy to do the
research. If this program isn't suited to my needs, please let me know that too.
Thanks in Advance,
