I have read that Netmeeting can be used as call manager endpoint.
I have read the System & Admin guides on how to do this.
However, I do not understand how does call manager "talk" to netmeeting ?
Is it not required to use a gatekeeper when H.323 clients that do not use the skinny protocol are configured as cisco phone extensions ?
If no gatekeeper is involved, how will netmeeting know how to resolve a cisco phone directory number (unless it uses call manager as a gateway) ?
Moreover, how will cisco phones be able to dial netmeeting extensions as they would not know the IP address ?
Also, in the Admin & System guides, nowhere does it link an ip address of a netmeeting client to a directory number.
So call manager has no idea of netmeetings IP addr unless netmeeting "registers" with some common entity visible to the rest of the call manager platform.
Does netmeeting use SCCP in addition to H.323 ?
Does Call Manager implement a gatekeeper internally ?
Does Call Manager act as a gateway when Netmeeting tries to call cisco IP phones by Directory Numbers ?
Can anyone throw some more light on this.
