Softros LAN Messenger Overview

Softros LAN Messenger is an easy-to-use LAN messaging application for safe, secure and effective intra-office communication. It does not require a server to run and is very easy to install. Softros LAN IM comes with a variety of handy features such as PC-to-PC messaging, group LAN chat rooms, broadcast messaging to quickly notify selected individuals or groups about an event, and also drag-and-drop file transfer to exchange files and folders between staff members. All messages and files exchanged by the users are securely encrypted and never go outside your local company network, which guarantees that no unauthorized person will ever read your private correspondence or access your sensitive data.

Key features:
  • Security, Safety and Privacy
    The Softros LAN chat software encrypts all data with AES-256 and works strictly within your company network. This allows your employees to safely exchange messages and files, while discouraging them from chatting with people outside the organization. It also saves your Internet bandwidth and minimizes the number of opened firewall ports that could result in outside hacker attacks and IM worms.
  • Ease of Installation and Use
    The instant messenger from Softros has a very intuitive interface and requires no additional training. All you need to do is install and run it on each network computer. Users themselves can easily configure the program without requesting assistance from the IT staff.
  • Serverless Architecture
    You do not need to set up and maintain a dedicated messaging server – our IM tool is a stand-alone peer-to-peer based application.
  • Individual and Group Conversations
    Exchange messages with just one or multiple users at the same time.
  • Group Messaging
    Notify individual users or whole user groups about an event by sending out a broadcast message.
  • Offline Messaging
    Send messages to users even when they are offline. Offline messages are received when the users come back online. No server or dedicated storage is required for this.
  • File Transfer
    Easily exchange documents with your colleagues. Just drag and drop a file or folder on the recipient's icon in the user list or on the conversation you are having with them.
  • User Groups
    Arrange your co-workers in groups by department or job title.
  • Message History
    Keep track of your messages by saving them locally or to a network share. View, search through and print out your correspondence with other employees using the built-in History Viewer.
  • Terminal Services Support
    Full support of Microsoft and Citrix Terminal Services environments (including the RemoteApp and XenApp application virtualization technologies).
  • Active Directory and Domain Support
    Softros Intranet Messenger seamlessly works in a correctly set up domain controller environment with Active Directory. Users' full names retrieved from Active Directory are displayed in the user list, while their SIDs are used for identification purposes within the program.
  • LAN, WAN, VPN and VLAN Support
    Enhanced functionality of the Sofros local chat application allows you to link your company locations or subnets into a single messaging environment. Just connect your subnets physically, virtually or with a VPN and then configure the program by referring to our detailed help system.
  • Network Wide Group Policy Deployment
    In a domain controller environment, deploying the Softros messaging software, its license and settings across the network can be easily done through Group Policy.
  • Importing, Exporting and Pre-configuring User Settings
    In case your company does not have a domain controller with Active Directory, Softros LAN Messenger allows you to automate distribution of its settings (network settings, user groups, license file, administrative restrictions) using certain built-in features.
  • Restricting User Access
    Administrators can selectively restrict access to most features of the Softros communication software.
