Hi Adrian, Willem,

| For the same of simplicity I imagine having a single
| 'sip_desktop_sharing' command line tool. When you call it without an URI
| argument, it REGISTERs and waits for an incoming INVITE. If you start it
| with an URI you start an INVITE session to it.

I haven't gotten the script to work * , but there is different
functionality, it looks to me. There are three scenario's I see:

- - Anne wants to send her desktop to Bob

~  > sip_desktop_sharing bob at host.com

- - Anne want to retrieve the desktop from Bob

~  > sip_desktop_sharing --request bob at host.com

- - Anne wants John at the service desk to be able to request her desktop
~  whenever he wants (but not Bob, her ex-boy friend).

~  > sip_desktop_sharing --password crazy765 --auto john at host.com

I don't think setting up a desktop session without a password for
anybody that requests it, will pass the test of time.


* = I get an error:
