Anyone have a recommendation for an application to allow desktop sharing with up to 5 viewers simultaneously?

 

I recently was forced into an upgraded subscription to LogMeIn for 2 main workstations and they do allow desktop sharing but only for a single viewer.  Additionally, while it appears you can remotely log in and initiate desktop sharing, when you try to connect a viewer, you get a busy error:

There was a desktop sharing service that I had used a couple of years ago that actually let you purchase day passes to use their service but I can't seem to find anything about it, and I only need this service a few times a year so open source or ad supported would be acceptable also.

I use Teamviewer. It's a free program. Have a go and see if that will work for you as it worked for me.

I use TeamViewer for family and friend support but I am looking for a solution for business, and TeamViewer licensing is pretty steep ($750) and only allows you to host on one licensed workstation.

I'm not sure if Adobe Connect will meet your needs. I think it's mainly for presentation but I believe you can also screen share with it.

We use TightVNC here... very stable and powerful. Works on most OS's too....

 

edit: whoops... dunno how many supported connections sorry, just use it for one on one support. Worth a look though.
