Here comes a free LAN messenger, named SSuite NetVine, for private chat, file, and email sharing. This software is suitable for offices and small organizations connected with the same network (LAN). Instead of using other services that require a server to establish communication and start the conversation, you can take help of this peer to peer messenger. No server required and your chat and files are transferred directly. The only condition is that you and other users must be running this software to establish the connection.
The software can automatically detect all the PCs connected on the same network and lets you start the chat or file sharing with any device. Also, a separate window is provided for each individual feature. So, you can chat, share files, and send emails side by side. Where many other similar messengers are limited to provide only chat support, this software looks a really good option.
Above you can see its main interface that includes all its features.
Note: The software might not run well in Windows 10, but works really well in Windows 7.
