Name of an old Windows 3.1 application

What is the name of the old Windows 3.1 application that allowed you to do peer to peer chat with someone on your local network?  Similar to Net Send but it was a GWI app.  It reminded me of Unix's Write.  I believe the executable for the program was located in the system32 directory on Windows 95.  Any Ideas.

Thanks

The executable is winchat.exe.   It's stored in the Windows directory on a WFW3.11 system.   It's a compact little app => only 41,984 bytes :-)

... it was not included with Windows 95; but if I recall correctly it would work fine if you simply copied it to a Win95 system.   Used to use it all the time to "talk" across our home network in the early-to-mid 90's.

I am using Windows XP and WinChat is installed on my computer in the Windows\System32 folder.

The WinChat in XP is v5.1.2600;  the Windows for Workgroups version is v3.11.0.399.

Both are compact little applications that make it simple to "chat" across a Windows network.
