    Question Network Chat


    Hi,

    My IT class at school has a network of 17 machines plus a server. All the machines are running Fedora Core 5 and are wirelessly connected to a hub (connected to the internet) and a server that runs XP Pro. What i want to know is, what would be the best way to chat between the Fedora Core 5 machines. I've tried several programs and none seem to work. This is sought of a requirement and semming as last year the class used XP, its new to all of us.

    Thanks for any help in advance.

    Regards, Simulator

    pick any of the workstations and run an IRCD on it? then everyone can connect to that ip or hostname and chat away.

    thanks, i found that after a google search and downloaded it. I need some help in configuring it to run. The main .conf file is what is really bothering me.

    Unfortuantely UnrealIRCD didn not work. I think it could be the Netgear Wireless Router (WGR614) we are using. The problem being we cannot connect and change its settings. Any other ideas. Thanks.
