    Question LAN messenger software - HELP!
    Our company is in need of an instant messenger system that is cross-platform friendly. The system needs to work for OS X 10.3 and up, and also Windows 2000 and XP.

    Something similar to this:
    Outlook Messenger doesn't work with OS X 10.3

    I can't seem to find anything that meets our OS needs. Any ideas?

    What protocols does it need to conform to? Adium is a multi-protocol IM client. Is that what you're looking for?

    Microsoft has a version of Messenger for OS X too... what are you running on your Windows machines?
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I imagine you're looking for a messenger that doesn't communicate OUTSIDE the LAN, correct? Just secure, internal communication?

    If so, check out the website called I found it using a google search for "cross platform LAN messaging".

    I haven't installed to test it, but from the descriptions on the page, it appears to be just what you're looking for.
