Server Less IM

Server Less IM

post by Irvin Piraman

We’ve been (unofficially) using Vypress Chat running on Windows for our corporate instant messaging and file transfer needs.

Vypress Chat is a user-friendly application for real-time chatting in small office or home office (SOHO) local networks. This unique chat software features an easy-to-understand format for text-based conferences and discussions. Vypress Chat does not require an Internet connection or a dedicated server to support discussions, and all users have equal access to the application’s tools and functions. Vypress Chat enables individuals to instantly communicate about joint projects, and managers can send instantaneous memos to individuals, departments, or the entire company.

Since, I was running Xubuntu on my laptop I looked for the free software alternative. I decided to use eChat (with limited-functionality)… Grab the source, extract, and read the README file. We also need libncurses5-dev and of course build-essential.

Is there an application with the same kind of features already in edgy? I’d really like to see it integrated in Telepathy in feisty or feisty+1.
