I have been on the lookout for an opensource webex\video confrencing tool and finally ran across DimDim. It is really slick! http://www.dimdim.com/
I did an import of the virtual machine into our ESX environment (it complained about an error but appears to work). Then using the instructions here
I was able to give it a static address and was off an running!
Here is a copy of the post for my history
I’m trying to find something I can implement on my own servers. Then I noticed they have a Vmware appliance version so I decided I would download it and give it a shot.
At first I can ping the vm from my laptop but not from another pc on my network . So I need to troubleshoot the networking first by running ifconfig eth0 to see what the IP is. I see it’s assigned 192.168.2.113.
Going to try and manually set the IP
now press esc and :wq to save changes and quit
going to edit the hostname now
next edit the gateway
and restart the network service
service network restart
Have to push the IP address to all the settings within Dimdim
./Config-ipaddress.pl 192.168.2.3 80 192.168.2.3
When I tried to login to http://192.168.2.3/dimdim all I’m getting is a little cherry icon in the top left hand corner. After searching the blogs I found a fix
I had to edit this file
and add this to the end of it

Just as a note here I had to change my port # to 8080 because my ISP at home blocks access to port 80. I also had to NAT port 8080 and 1935 on my firewall to allow it to work from the outside.
