ChatNet provides the simplest Macintosh interface to chat and send files on the Internet or a Local Area Network. ChatNet offers two modes for chat. The AppleTalk Mode allows multiple Macintosh computers running ChatNet to chat or send files on a Local Area Network, with or without a Server. The IRC Mode allows chat and file transfer through an Internet Relay Chat Server. ChatNet acts as a client program providing a button oriented graphical interface for all IRC functions. There is no need to know any IRC commands.
ChatNet's simple interface will be familiar to anyone who uses major online services and quickly learned by those who haven't experienced network communications. Users interact via public and private conferences, send private messages, and transfer files to each other.
ChatNet can provide security and control over the entire Chat environment as everyone is concerned about the possibility of children encountering unsuitable material or conversation, especially on the Internet. ChatGuardian and ChatWatcher preference settings give complete control over the ChatNet environment from completely open to very restrictive. ChatGuardian gives you control over channel access and message content by screening out words and phrases that are preselected. ChatWatcher keeps a log of all user activity. IRC Server access can also be controlled.
ChatNet is the perfect tool for homes, schools, businesses, and departmental workgroups. Hold online group conferences or have one-to-one private communication. Workgroups can discuss project status, strategy, and reach each other for questions and answers at the click of a button. All communication can be saved or printed for later reference.
