    Do you mean something that "doesnt" exit the internal network? or a voice / video / messaging system like matt suggests?

    Netmeeting
    It can exit your network but not very well and nobodies really using it so it wouldn't matter anyway.

    Re: Video Chat / web chat over LAN

    I've been asked if we could provide a messaging facility between classrooms. The teachers have this idea that it would be nice for the kids to chat between classes. I can see some advantages in being able to send messages but a potential problem with them popping up on the W/B during a lesson. "Miss Smith, your pregnancy test results have arrived!"

    Is anyone else doing this?

    I setup Spark on the clients with Wildfire on a server - [ which is now Openfire ] - when I can be bothered to move up to Openfire I will.

    Are there are any major differences does anyone know that I should be concerned about ?

    I also wrote a simple script which will turn off Spark from clients just in case some of the pupils are using that instead of getting on with their work !!
