Setting Up a WebEx Personal Conferencing Number (PCN)

You don’t have to host a Web meeting or be at your computer to take advantage of WebEx audio. Once you set up a Personal Conference Number (PCN), you can conduct an adhoc WebEx audio-only conference. You can also use your PCN account numbers when scheduling a regular, online WebEx meeting.

As a host you can have up to three PCNs. Each PCN provides a host access code and attendee access code. You can share these PCNs as needed. Once you've set up your PCN(s), you can give out the host/attendee codes to others to join WebEx audio conferences.
