Communicating over your LAN / Wi-Fi network with our IM and Video Phones

Posted on February 5, 2013 at 6:05 AM

 

It has recently become very popular to start using your own infrastructure or LAN / Wi-Fi network to communicate peer-to-peer with others. This option is a much easier method of communication between people in the same office, campus, or even home environments.

 

It is not just the best way of instant communication, but is also a free way of communicating between computers. There is no internet connection required, so you don't need to use your precious and very expensive bandwidth for calling and chatting over your own LAN or Wi-Fi network. { Unlike Skype and the other IM messenger apps }

 

You already own and use your network to connect to each other for document transfers, so why not use it for communicating with each other by either instant messenging {IM} or video conferencing.

 

We have a whole range of free stand-alone, peer-to-peer, server-less video phones and IM applications for anyone to download.

 

Here are a few screenshots of our free LAN communication software apps for you to view:

Just type in your I.P. address of the other computer and press the call button. That is all you need to start a video conference or IM session with your friends and family.    8)
