Good Day Experts,

I noticed that there is an option in add or remove windows components for Message Queing Services.  What is that used for?  Could I set up a chat server with that?

Thanks,

Ellsworth

Hey, Ellsworth.

For a complete description of Message Queueing, check out:

You can set up a chat server with it, but only if you write a chat server program.  It does allow you to send/receive messages, but it's more of an internal messaging infrastructure rather than a server service.

Long time no chat Splinter: ),

So are there any free chat programs written that i could run?  We would only want it for internal chat anyways.

Many Thanks,

Ellsworth

Also I noticed that was for w2k3.  Is it pretty much the same deal for w2k?  Also have you ever written a chat program before or managed a chat server?

Many Thanks,

Yeah, it's pretty much the same, although W2K has more features, better security, etc.

No, I've never written a chat program, but it's not going to be a light undertaking.

You can try Message Pal at www.messagepal.com or IM for LAN from Softros at messenger.softros.com.

Those aren't free, but they're cheap - starting at around $10 per user.

I'm not aware of any shareware ones out there, but I'm sure there are some.

Greetings ellsworth2000,

Use the builtin Netmeeting, it will let you chat, transfer files, share desktop with your peers in you LAN, without investing any $$.

More info here:

Thanks Naser72,

I couldn't go to that link but i did a search for net meeting on MS's site and now i have ran the conf and setup netmeeting.  Though one problem is that I can't get net meeting to connect to a Microsoft Internet Directory.  How do I tell net meeting to connect to the server that i just installed message queueing services on?  or what do i have it connect to?

Thanks,

Ellsworth

Ellsworth,

Try cutting and pasting the link, but it only gives really basic information.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/NetMeeting/Corp/default.ASP is the homepage for NetMeeting for business use.  I'm not sure it's going to do what you want, though.  That's about the extent of my expertise with NetMeeting, though.  :-)
