    lan messenger needed

    Hello all I'm new here so please forgive me if I have posted this is the wrong place.

    We are a Novell house running OES / DSFW. We are also using Novell messenger. We are currently moving away from Novell and going to a pure Windows solution. In doing so Novell messenger will no longer work. Can anyone recommend a Lan messenger solution?

    What we are looking for in a lan messenger solution is:
    1. it must archive all messages "on server"
    2. it must not communicate with out of band programs like AOL
    3. it must work across different subnets

    This is going to be used by faculty and staff "not students" to communicate with out interrupting the class. I have looked at many Free lan messengers but most do not archive. I also looked at Lantalk and Outlook lan messenger. Lantalk seems to do what I want but are there any others out there?

    Thanks for all replies

    looking at it I'm seeing I need a CAL for the server then I also need a CAL for each teacher. Do you happen to know how much each CAL is?

    Im testing

    Download LAN Messenger 1.2.35 Free - Chat with the people on your network - Softpedia

    here at my school ill let you know how it goes. The aim is to only have it on teacher machines so that they can contact the ICT technician and not have to send pupils all the way round to the office, as there is no telephone in there.

    Thank you for the replies. currently we are not EEES but we have been looking into it. If we do then I think Lync would be the way to go. I have to find out from my director if EEES is doable this year or not.

    I use Openfire" which runs off a server, and with that running I use Spark IM on each PC.
    It Uses AD authentication (Same Username and Password as PC login)

    Ignite Realtime: a real time collaboration community site

    Best thing about this, ITS FREE

    Good Luck
