I've been searching the web looking for a solution to a problem, came across this forum and figured I would throw this out here and see if anyone else has some thoughts to guide me along here.


I have a VPN in-place and am needing a secured way to do point-to-point video (don't really need conference ability) with some of my employees. Due to the work we do, I have to ensure that security is taken in to consideration (which is why Skype/Google/etc) won't work.


I need something that will work within our LAN / VPN network and can run on multi-os / multi-device (pc, mac / apple, android).


If anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate the feedback. I would prefer something open-source or fairly cheap. I know Cisco has a few options, but our organization is extremely small and we don't have thousands (or even hundreds) of dollars just laying around to put in to something like this.


Thanks in advance.

Do you want a one-way video connection (i.e. your employees watch something that you "present") or are you looking for a two-way video call?

If the former, then you might be able to do it with some sort of consumer level security camera that has the ability to stream to an application on a computer on the "local" network (this assumes your VPN is setup such that the "other end" on the VPN does in fact see your network as "local"). I would assume this should work.

If it is the latter, then I found this:


NOTE: I HAVE NO CLUE HOW SECURE OR REPUTABLE THIS SOFTWARE IS...I found it with a Google search. Thus, you will need to do some research on them yourself.
