    Network IM solution

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have any idea what decent instand messenging software there is around? Both free and chargeable software is useful.
    It must be only network based.
    It is something that might be useful to give to teachers to contact each other easily but also a useful function would be being able to contact the students and have help sessions if needed.

    cheers

    Jabber (free). Do a search for it on these forums, there's a few threads about it.

    I would suggest Jabber - try openfire, as it is easy to set up and run. Do a google search for it.
