A co-worker of mine and I are attempting to find unix solutions for nearly everything that we do in the office. While this is not completely possible because of certain Windows proprietary software (like Visual Studio and Access), we are trying still the same.
One of our main functions is to conduct online meetings with clients through Go2Meeting (http://www.gotomeeting.com). Is there a unix based application that we could use to do this? Something that would allow us to connect to our GoToMeeting accounts and share our workspace, audio, etc.?
I don't know... Why do you think it's an "advert"? Because I use correct english and try to explain myself completely?
It's an honest question. Is there a linux client that has the ability to utilize a Go2Meeting account to share a desktop/user environment?
It just so happens that our boss has a Go2Meeting account and most of our clients are already familiar with it. It would be too much of a hassle to try and get them to migrate to something else just because we want to be able to move away from Microsoft Windows. Is that an unreasonable endeavor?
I would appreciate any real insight, and not another jerk reply.
I suspect that because it's a proprietary product the answer will be no. In theory, unless the clients install odd things to the PC, a java enabled browser should do the trick. You could try experimenting with Wine or Crossover Office or ies4linux, but that may be more work than you want.
Another option is to contact their tech support to see if there is a workaround.
Well, it's not a matter of needing to use go2meeting. It's more of the fact that we already have an account with that service and our clients are already familiar with it. We are the only two out of several people in the office who prefer to use linux over Windows.
One feature in particular that we like is the fact that we don't have to worry about firewalls or ports with Go2Meeting. Also, for new clients, it's only a one click install (in Windows) to get the software running to connect to a meeting with us.
