Long before America Online introduced its Instant Messenger service, Windows had one built in. Called WinPopup on Windows 95/98/Me and the Messenger service on Windows NT/2000, this messaging infrastructure was normally used for IT-oriented communications, with devices alerting "The printer is out of paper" or an administrator's notification "Log off, the file server's shutting down in five minutes." Beyond that, Windows' message service was too crude and hard to use to appeal to most users. It would also only communicate with PCs on the corporate local area network. That set the scene for AOL Instant Messenger's success. Now a company called CEZEO software has replaced the Messenger service and WinPopUp with an application called LanTalk XP. It's still limited to communicating with other users on your company's LAN - but otherwise, it's everything that AIM is -- and more.
I tested LanTalk XP 2.8 on several PCs running Windows 2000 and Windows 98. The installation process is very easy and only takes a few minutes.
Once installed, LanTalk LAN messenger is easy to use. If someone sends you a message, a pop-up window displays the text. You can reply to that message just like replying to e-mail, including quoting back parts of the original message. You can send messages to multiple machines by selecting them from a list of Windows-based PCs on the network, or even send messages to ALL machines (use this with caution unless you're the network administrator). The latest version of the software, added the ability to create your own mailing lists, so you can exchange messages with a group of colleagues.
One important benefit of LanTalk over AOL Instant Messenger is that you don't have to use this software to be part of a messaging group. Because it's based on the Windows Messenger protocol, Windows NT/2000 users automatically can exchange messages with LanTalk users using the Messenger services. Windows 95/98/Me users can also do so if they launch the WinPopUp program included with Windows.
This is an excellent utility for organizations that wish to implement instant messaging within their LAN, without having to set up complex servers or use instant messaging systems from AOL or Microsoft. The features are good, and the price is low.
To the point LanTalk Pro was by far one of the best Network Communications titles we have tested. A easy to use interface and extremely easy install we literally were sending messages on our LAN one minute after installing it. A veritable cornucopia of options to play with making it one of the best Network Communications programs we have toyed with.
Today, there are many other office instant messaging software solutions available. Most such applications are simple, inexpensive, easy-to-use and quick-to-set-up. Instant messaging market is one of the most competitive in the entire software industry. Being one of the founders and working almost ten years in instant messaging software development, we had a choice - to make the best instant messaging software, or lose our market share. So, here is LanTalk - a solution that outperforms all competitors. Our customers is fully satisfied with LanTalk messenger, its easy to use and easy to install!
