     This is a server/client IM messenger that currently:
  • allows users to chat to one another.
  • upload an avatar picture.
  • send files.
  • allows the server to see what a user is up to on their workstation.

It is intended for LAN networks, specifically in schools, where the server would be running on the instructors PC. The teacher could then see whatever the students are doing. while allow the students to chat among themselves, and send files.

The server can also distribute a file to all the students but only one at a time. Uses Winsock UDP and TCP.

See documentation (included) for message protocols.

Needs CRC.dll and zlib32.dll available here:

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net

The dll files cannot be downloaded. Where else can they be downloaded? Your program sounds interesting. I teach at a school and would find it useful.
