Hi, Everybody! We got some news for you here:
In OnLAN Messenger 3.9.0 the developer’s concept of moving system administration to the web-interface is completely carried out. Now business messenger’s monitor and server are accessible in browser’s window, which makes messaging software management and employee’s work control easy and comfortable.
The web-interface is enhanced. Now it can be accessed automatically by launching OnLAN Server shortcut on an administrator’s computer’s desktop. An administrator gets interactive support in the form of tool tips emerging in the left menu under the Quick Help header.
Server and client messaging software help is available in the web-interface’s Help menu option. The main window’s statistics block is now more functional and informative.
Common users will get increased message history viewing form performance. Now it’s possible to view a recipient status icon in the message sending form.
Complete list of changes since previous version:
01.02.2009 – 3.9.0
* Maximum size of transmitted information in one message increased.

Thank you for your questions, David.
Stream cipher and AES are used. The application scales really well, the bigger the number of users the stronger the hardware requirements. 1CPU 4CORE processor can operate 600-800 users.
Should you have more questions, please ask.
Now let me give you a product overview.
To start with, as it goes from the name of the software OnLAN Messenger messaging service is a client-server multi-user application for instant messaging and file exchange working on LAN. This product has been developed for using within corporate networks (enterprise instant messenger), therefore its functions and settings are primarily meant for handling the needs of organizations of all sizes, providing a safe and configurable tool for instant messaging and receiving necessary user information.
The main difference between OnLAN Messenger and other similar programs (ICQ, Jabber, MSN etc) is that OnLAN Messenger is easily modifiable and features flexible security policies, which can be set up on the server and made mandatory for all clients. Program features are designed specifically for corporate use: clients are unable to close the program, offline messages are enabled, message status (delivered, shown, read) is recorded, delivery is guaranteed, complete records of all messages are kept, etc.
I agree with Mr Oats and Gandalf. By the way, does she know your real name? If she doesn't, forget about it as noone would ever recognise you on this video.
But no doubt, Joe the plumber will help McCaine to win the elections
I believe it's good that he keeps pace with the time and uses new media in his campaign. Good for him at the first place. People who use internet will more likely vote for him rather than for an old man stuck in the Cold war mentality.
Axelkan, thanks for your questions. Actually, there are a number of reasons why it's not worth using popular public IMs for corporate communications.
They are not secure, uncontrollable and wasting precious work time. Besides, they allow employees to chat with people who don't belong to the company, which in many cases is undesirable. That's why we designed a solution for companies who want to avoid these problems and gain more control over instant messaging at office.
I don't say that OnLAN Messenger is the only one. The competition is tough and there are a lot of corporate messengers on the market.
But what makes our product different is exactly what you're asking 'bout – it satisfies the needs of a business. OnLAN Messenger allows editing user policies and setting up roles for different positions in a company, displaying organizational structure, monitoring working hours and messaging activity and a lot more. I forgot to mention the basic features a corporate messenger must have – highest security level through encryption and secure LAN channel, file transfer, message delivery confirmation, web-interface and so on.
I hope I've answered your question.
We are using our main product OnLAN Messenger to communicate with each other (we are selling it and using it ourselves).
Using IM at work helps to improve business communications and increase efficiency. You don't have to go around the office to solve simple issues, when you can just send a couple of messages. File transfer is also very convinient through IM, not worse than through email.
So, at work we aren't only selling our main software product – OnLAN Messenger, but also using it to chat with colleagues 🙂
