View Full Version : [ubuntu] Messaging Client Between Ubuntu and Windows Vista

March 14th, 2009, 07:48 PM
Greetings and Felicitations,

I have a Dell C610 running Ubuntu Hardy Heron and a Dell desktop running Windows Vista. We are connected in a network over a Linksys Wireless G router which is connected to the Internet through a DSL modem.

I am looking for a messaging client that will allow me to send messages directly from the Linux computer to the desktop through the home network. I most definitely don't want to go through the internet to transfer messages.

Sincerely Yours,
C. David Neely
