SYMPTOMS

When you try to join an encrypted password-protected conference or a private conference, you may receive the following error message:
The meeting with specified name does not exist.

CAUSE

This problem can occur if you are using a browser that does not support ActiveX controls (for example, if you are running Microsoft Internet Explorer, and you have the security settings set to not run ActiveX controls).

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, in the Place A Call dialog box in Microsoft NetMeeting, click to select the Require security for this call (data only) check box.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Conferencing Server.

Microsoft is researching this problem and will post more information in this article when the information becomes available.

MORE INFORMATION

Netscape Navigator does not support the ActiveX functionality that embeds Microsoft NetMeeting in the Web page. Because of this limitation, Netscape Navigator users must manually start NetMeeting to participate in the conference. Internet Explorer users must also manually start NetMeeting if the security settings are set to not run ActiveX controls. The third-party products that are discussed in this article are manufactured by companies that are independent of Microsoft. Microsoft makes no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding the performance or reliability of these products.
