From computer1:

net send "hello there" computer 2

and vice versa

more messaging then chat, but it does work (unless disabled because of security)

If you're running Windows you can set up a simple peer-peer network that will allow you to share files, printers etc. if that's what you're thinking? Or do you actually want to send messages to and from each PC? A very basic way to do this is using the Messenger service and the net send command, there are a few freeware utilities that offer a GUI for this.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

We used to use a program called "BorgChat".  It has more advanced features, but can also be used as a basic chat client.  It contains no spyware or adware.
