Make your own free website on

I'm looking for owners of http and ftp sites that can host download page for the programs. I have been using free hosting sites for more then two years now. Some time ago all such providers started to delete accounts because they don't like direct links on the files that don't show their banners. I understand that. Traffic costs money, and 1 MB of chat program can generate a lot of traffic.

Intranet Chat is freeware program. Therefore as you understand I can't pay for the hosting but I don't want to make it shareware in the near future.

If you like ichat, want to support it, have a web site and can afford additional traffic then drop me a letter. But if you pay for outgoing traffic, then probably this proposal is not for you since the site can result in 100 downloads a day or more.

If you provide me with a hosting page, I will put up a big thank you message to you on my site, and I will put your companys banners and links on the IChat home page. This is the only thing that I can do.

16.10.2001 (1.21b2)

[+] - If chat couldn't connect to the chat server it always show "Couldn't connect to". Chat connected to the server that you set. Not to this address. It only displayed not right address.
[+] - Fixed saving sound settingss. They were not saved in these cases:
1. Exception occured and chat was closed by Windows.
2. When shutdown of Windows 9x/ME was performed when chat was running.
I could't check it on Windows 9x/ME but it has to work now.
[+] - Chat didn't work on Windows NT 4 when I made changes for Terminal Server support. It simply didn't start. The same could be on Windows 9x/ME. I fixed this problem by I'm not sure that it will work on Windows NT 4 Terminal Server Edition. If somebody is using it and can check it then send me a letter.
[+] - Automatic user list resfresh worked not right for the lines and private chats that you were not connected to. If it discovered that there are no users anymore in the line then it deleted top node of the line but it didn't delete line nodes for the users that were connected to the line before refresh. The same happend with private chat if you disconnected from it.

01.10.2001 (1.21b1)

[+] - Using login name as nickname. Computer name is used like nickname is it was not possible to get login name or login name was not typed (ESC was pressed in Windows 9x/Me). Before in such case some kind of garbage was used.

[*] - Multiline editor on the message board page authomatically contains yours message board message.
[*] - Ctrl+A (select all) works in the message editor.
[*] - Server address name can be not only IP address now. You can type as IP so host name. If DHCP is used then IP address will be not static. That is why I changed it. There no checking is performed anymore. You can type what ever you like there. Chat will try to get IP address of it and try to connect.
[*] - Added authomatic "sticking" of chat window to the screen borders if distance between chat window and border is less then 20 pixels. This function will work only if "Show windows content while dragging" is on.
[*] - From this version it's possible to run chat in Terminal Services sessions but only if chat server is used. It's not possible to make it work without server. Be carefull with such using. If Terminal Session was disconnected but was not closed and next login will create new session (it's possible that previous session will still work) then you can't run chat. It will still work in the previous session that should be closed before this. I tested this function only on Windows 2000 Server. I don't have abilities to test it on Windows NT 4.0 Terminal Server Edition.
[*] - Added support for Belorussian, Lithuanian, Ukrainian, Latvian, Romanian, Spanish, Spanish (Catalan), Spanish (Castellano), Slovenian language. Some translations on other languages were also changed a little bit. TopList
