Thanks to modern gadgets and technologies, everyone can communicate with each other without having to go to extra lengths. Then again, there may be situations when you do not have access to the Internet and need to communicate with others in the same building with you. This is when a LAN messenger comes in handy.

LAN messengers are specialized instant messaging applications that are meant to be used within a predefined LAN (Local Area Network). The main advantage of this type of IM is that it does not even require an Internet connection or a server since it functions within a private network.

It provides access only to the workstations located inside the network and therefore conversations cannot be intercepted by any outsider. Besides chatting, LAN messengers also support file transfers, emoticons, conferences and, similarly to text and emails, you can keep records of the conversations in case you need to recall something.
