What I am after is a piece of FREE software that would
me to set up our own chatroom on our intranet. Any ideas?
There are several IRC and ICQ servers downloadable from the internet
- although the only ones I've seen run under windows.
We did have chat software some time ago, but had to close it down because
of non-parliamentary language. I tried it in my exchange school too, and
had to close that down even faster.
Exactly the same here.
After that, we cobbled up our own web-based chatroom, which simply called a
cgi-bin application on the intranet server which read the submissions and
sent them on their way.
But now they simply use WWW chatrooms, and I've near enough given up trying
to control it.
An interesting side effect is the rate at which pages with prohibited text
are added to the blacklist...
