? Prog to work with Window's NetMeeting "share desktop" (need T.120, not H.323)

Is there any (free, preferably) Linux program that's compatible with Window's NetMeeting "share desktop" (T.120 protocol)? I wish to join other's meetings where they share their desktop, for viewing only. I have no need to share my own desktop, nor do I need video or audio conferencing (e.g., GnomeMeeting/Ekiga - H.323 protocol).

I know and use many other remote desktop apps under Linux (FreeNX being my favorite). However, at work 99.99% of the company uses Windows, and on conference calls the host person typically uses NetMeeting to share their desktop (but no audio/video via NetMeeting - only desktop). So I need to connect in and join THEIR way of doing things, I can't convince the entire company to start doing it MY preferred way!

Dual-booting back to Windows to use NetMeeting is my current workaround. Yeuch! It's just as easy to dual-boot to Windows on those infrequent NetMeeting occassions as to work with VMware, Crossover Office, etc. So I'm not terribly interested in in pursuing those as an option. Are their other T.120 options available for Linux?
