    Have a user that RDP'd into a remote machine. He can run Netmeeting and see
    other's shared desktops but cannot share his own desktop in his RDP session.
    The share button is grey'd out. Can you share your RDP session desktop? I
    would't thnk so but not sure.

    Thanks

    If Computer A RDP connects to Computer B there is no way to share Computer A
    if Computer B is running NetMeeting.

    Now if Computer B is running NetMeeting and Computer B cannot seem to share
    anything on Computer B then I would bet that there might be some group
    policies in place that prevent this. You can test this out by logging in
    locally to Computer B to see if you can share in NetMeeting. If Computer B
    is a Terminal Server and you are not an Network Admin you obviously can't do
    that test, but if it is a Terminal Server hopefully it is a GP restriction
    because the Network Admin should not be allowing that on a Terminal Server.
