FREE web conferencing software. Is there any?
I am trying to convince my boss that web confrencing is a good idea and I want to find some free software or a free server so I can at least do a trial and show him the effectiveness of webcam confrerencing.
I would buy/subscribe once my point is proven (if I need to that is) but I cannot spend money unill that time.
All the software I have found is subscriber and server based where you must pay ongoing fees to use the service. Is there wcc software where I can just setup a VPN between offices and run our "own" conference?
The software needs virtually no features other that multiple camimages on one screen and audio.
ps - We run fairly extensive servers in multiple locations so could run web confrence server software without a problem if we had to.

In Windows you can use netmeeting which is part of the OS since Windows 95 (maybe later).

You may try using GoMeetNow web conferencing tool. It is very easy to use and works on both Windows and MAC Computers.

Norwegian technology is cool.
You asked for a web solution and not a Internet solution as everyone else have offered. I am the first person to actually answer your question as it is written.
Appear.in is a conferencing system built on browser-to-browser technologies. Using HTML5 and no plug-ins or add-ons to power encrypted and direct peer-to-peer connections between web browsers.
All that is required is a modern web browser on any operating system and they can join the conference. People join by typing in a URL you get from Appear.in (for peer-discovery) and can optimally set a password for the room. Everything depends on your web browser as a client. There is no server as every participant is the server. Oh, and its free because the operational costs of simply peering people up with each other for direct connections are nothing.
Appear.in is a product of Telenor of Norway. The same place where the Opera browser—my employer—originated.
