    I'm not sure if this is true, but I heard somewhere that you can configure
    MSN messenger to login in via Active directory accounts to act as a lan
    messenger? is this true? if so where can i read up more on it? Thanks

  2. It's been a while (2 years) since I looked into this, but as I understood
    it, there was a component of Exchange server that had it's own Instant
    Messaging client.

    That product was not 'MSN Messenger', however. You might ask a similar
    question in Exchange Server related groups.

    Just out of curiousity, what sort of lan messaging scenario are you
    interested in?

  5. Is this an enterprise deployment? Are you going to be investing company
    money in deploying something of this nature? If so, what sort of target
    value would you be looking for in, perhaps, a dedicated Instant Messaging
    Server? How many clients do you expect to service for that amount?

  7. With Exchange 2000 you can use Windows Messenger 4.7. This service was
    pulled form Exchange 2003. If you're looking for a Microsoft product, you
    can go with Live Communications Server, however if you don't need all the
    collaboration that Live CS gives you, might I recommend you consider a
    smaller 3rd party LAN IM program.

    And the fact that you work for the maker of this best LAN Messenger software
    is in no way influencing your position now is it?

    thank you for all your replies. I just had something in mind for my 4 pc lan
    at home lol. Hopefully one day I can get a job as a Junior Administrator and
    plan a mass deployment for an organisation :).

    If its only for 4 machines, either write one yourself or grab a freebie one
    from somewhere (im sure at, somebody would take you up for a
    tiny fee $10-15). If your gonna write it yourself, look at using Java's RMI
    or Microsofts .NET Remoting, it makes it fairly easy to call remote functions
    on another users machine. You can probably download a beta or freebie Visual
    Studio which would be my dev environment of choice.

    For mass deployment, you need something more robust. I'd suggest Net Send.
