Does the latest version of meetingplace express support remote control so that one user can remotly control the application of the other user ?

Is it the same application that Cisco TAC use to remote control my telnet or console session during the TAC cases ?

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for your reply

What is the different between this feature on meetingplace express and Webex ?

Do i need the webex to offer remote support to my customer ?

Hi Mohamed,

as far as i know these are totaly different products. cisco acquired webex in 2007 and added it to their product portfolio. i think the key difference is that webex is a hosted solution while meetingplace is installed on a server in your company.

however, if you have meetingplace installed at your site, you can use the remote control features out of the box - without using webex additionally.

regards, oliver

As a moderator or presenter, you can request control of the screen of another presenter or moderator.


Step 1 Click Request Control on the Share tool control strip.

If the request is accepted, a message informs you that you have been granted control of the screen. The Request Control button becomes a Release Control button. You can now take control of the shared screen.

Step 2 To return control of the shared screen to the original presenter, click Release Control on the Share tool control strip.

regards, oliver
