	You have to read carefully and interpret what he's written, unless it's me who misunderstood what he meant.

	When he said "share", he actually meant to "let somebody see".  VNC (or PCAnywhere) is supposed to redraw everything on the screen, whatever window you have.  But he wants some windows to be "visible" while others not.  You think netmeeting could do so?  If yes, why not just use it??
