I need a simple program:
Posted on 2000-05-11
Hello. I am looking for a program, either allready made, or if someone could compile one for me, that does the following:
A program that rings a friend through the internet using his IP address:
Say I'm not by my computer, but its connected to the net (LAN) and my friend wants to call me to the computer (so that he can chat with me for example) and what he will do, is put my IP address into the program and press a button, and this will make the program on my side ring (and then I'll know that someone wants me to come to the computer).
This program has to work both ways, and is preferable that it will be only one program to ring, and to receive a ring together.
This program has to work for windows, and to use IP addresses.
Things that would be nice that the program will have, but don't have to be are:
1)Taking the IP to call from the ICQ online list.
2)Ringing length will be accroding to length of pressing the "ring" button.
3)Option of changing the ringing tone (WAV file for example).
4)Size of program on screen: Preferably, it will be in the system tray, untill someone calls, or at least that I can minimize it.
I don't care what language its programmed in, as long as it will work with windows 9x.
P.S. please don't suggest Chat-Messanger programs! I want a simple small program that will do just ringing, without chat.
