Internet Screen-sharing with MacRhino?

Anybody found a successful screen-sharing method when using MacRhino?

I’ve been doing some internet collaborating with a PC Rhino user who is using GoTo Meeting. I can see his Rhino screen and actions on his end just fine—however, whenever I try to present from my screen, the GoTo Meeting program crashes within a minute or less. I’ve tried both wireless and ethernet connection to the internet with no difference in success.

My web connection speed is not bad (28.49 mbps download / 5.78 mbps upload) and I’m not sure if it’s one or more of the following: system and/or hardware on my end (OSX 10.7.5, MBP 8,3); GoTo Meeting’s software for Macs; and/or something specifically related to MacRhino and the graphics card demands?

We use TeamViewer for both Windows and Mac.

Many thanks, John! Will check it out.


@John_Brock: TeamViewer seemed to work fairly well in a limited test and has lots of features.

There was only one (somewhat critical?) problem when using MacRhino—Right+clicking did not permit normal behavior (RotateView) when the guest was permitted to control the presenter’s screen. Rather, it issued the Right+Click and Hold behavior presenting the contextual menus.

Do you know if normal Right+Click behavior is possible when using TeamViewer with MacRhino? If so, any insights into how to enable it? (Note: Right+Click RotateView works on both computers being tested while running MacRhino without TeamViewer, so it seems like it’s a TeamViewer issue possibly related to the delay in transmission?)

Looking for an easy workaround since it seems pretty stable – many thanks again for suggesting this software!

(EDIT: Here’s a bit of a workaround—I discovered that Control + Left Click on the secondary computer will RotateView.)
