Free Download CafChat 1.1

A local area network chat application. CafChat is a basic P2P LAN chat applet. It allows users at multiple different machines within the same Domain or Workgroup to chat with each other.

If left running or if a shortcut is placed in the Start Menu's Startup folder, CafChat can be used as a simple alternative to the Messenger Service and NET SEND commands. Windows Vista and later do not include those tools. Unlike using MSG.EXE which is not part of Vista Home editions CafChat does not require that Terminal Services/Remote Desktop be installed and running.

Because of the way it uses Mailslots only one copy can be run on each machine. This makes it unsuitable for Terminal Servers. Aside from basic testing two machines or a second machine in a VM are required. The machines must have Windows Networking (File and Print Sharing) enabled, and the firewalls must allow it through. Verifying this is important since it is the most likely source of failure.

CafChat Features:
1. Simple short-message chatting among multiple parties.
2. Send on "enter" (no need to click the Send button).
3. List of active users, showing username@computername.
4. Regular message Send plus Alert send. Alert will flash the taskbar button of minimized peers.
5. Lightweight (61K plus 212K richtx32.ocx).

* VB6 Runtime Library
