- True Peer-to-Peer Networking
With NetChat, you do not need a dedicated server computer or software to communicate. NetChat operates completely in a
peer-to-peer mode, allowing efficient communication directly between users on a network. There is no server, so each message goes
directly from sender to receiver, without having to be routed through a central computer on the network.
- Does not require Outlook components
NetChat is completely independent of any other software requirements on your PC. The only thing that is needed is a local area network
running the TCP/IP protocol.
- No Direct Internet Connection Required
NetChat works completely on a local Ethernet network using the TCP/IP protocol. However, it does not need a connection to the Internet.
If you do have an Internet connection, NetChat works on your local subnet, so it will not be accessible from the "outside world."
- Easy to Use
Getting started with NetChat is very easy - just install the software on two or more computers on the same local network and you will be prompted for some user settings.
You may then begin instant messaging in real-time with other users.
