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?

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.
If you have EEES from MS CALS are included

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)
