About This File

I started working on this program in the summer of 2008 then I stopped cause I faced some problems I couldn't overcome back then. Now that I've practiced more and have become a better scripter/programmer I'm releasing the program to the public to get some opinions. I know it's not a new concept but it's the first program I started besides some small stuff I did just for practice! I won't post the source code yet because it's still under construction, although I'm sure I've posted early stages of the code with bugs in the past in some topic...

What I wanted was a simple, small, serverless program that would work without installation cause I wanted it for where I work, so I ended up with this!

 

I have attached some images of various versions, also visit the forum thread.

 

The package includes s!mpL3 LAN Messenger, the License Agreement and the change log.

 

Current version 2.9.9.0! [13/06/2019]

 

Check the Change Log below!

What's New in Version 2.9.9.0

Released

s!mpL3 LAN Messenger version 2.9.9.0 - [13/06/2019] - s!mpL3 LAN Messenger.zip

1. This is your first chance to try the new LAN Update feature! Just update s!mpL3 LAN Messenger on one computer and when it connects, all other computers on the network that have the option enabled should prompt you to update! I have made some fixes LAN Update in this version which will be visible next time. One of them is a custom GUI to inform you of an update which doesn't block the rest of the Messenger like the message box does in version 2.9.8.9.

2. Fixed "Unblock" button in Blocked Users List so that it's disabled when the list is empty and enabled when there are users in it.

3. Fixed an issue with some GUIs not hiding as they should when using the "Hide" option. (Blocked Users List, License)

4. Fixed an issue where if you would block someone, the chat window with them would remain open, now it closes. I might change this to the window remaining but becoming disabled.

5. Fixed a bug with resizing conversation windows and the buttons overlapping. The edits do not resize perfectly but I will work on that in a future version.

6. Added new icons for sending/receiving files. This icon will appear in the Tray for each file transfer that is underway and provides information about the file being sent/received and the progress of the transfer.

7. Updated all links to https.

8. Fixed multiple smaller bugs.

      s!mpL3 LAN Messenger as the name suggests is a messenger designed and developed to offer chat communication over Local Area Networks while being as simple to use as possible. This project started way back in 2008 with only basic functionality and is regularly updated with new features in order to make it more useful and user friendly. What I wanted was a simple, small, serverless program that would work without installation cause that was the ideal combination for my workplace back then, so I ended up with this!

      I have attached some images from various versions:

      You can view/download the full change log here: ChangeLog.txt

      Tested and working on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.


      Things you need to know before trying it:

      1. Start the program, select one or more connections from what's available and click Connect (If a firewall notice comes up, click 'Allow' or 'Add Exception')
      When someone else on your network does the same, they will appear in your Tree-view and you will appear in theirs, double click their name and chat!

      2. s!mpL3 LAN Messenger does not require a server to be running, it's standalone.

      3. On the first run an .ini file is created at @LocalAppDataDir\s!mpL3 LAN Messenger which stores the settings so that they are used every time you run the application. If you delete the .ini file it will be created again (with default settings at program startup or with your selected settings if you press Save from the Preferences window).

      4. All communication is encrypted using AES so it's quite secure against Network sniffers.

      5. You can send files and folders by dragging and dropping them in a conversation window. Folders are compressed before being sent. You can also drop multiple items to be sent.

      6. There is a "Hide" button located in the tray right click context menu that will hide all open windows. You can assign a Hotkey combination from Preferences. The default combination is Ctrl+H.

      7. s!mpL3 LAN Messenger uses port 60000 by default. You can change the port used by adding "Port=****" (without quotes, stars represent numbers) to the Config file described above. Communication is UDP.

      8. There is an Updater feature you can use to always have the latest available version, you only need an internet connection for that to work. You might need to clear your Internet Explorer Temporary Files in order for it to find an updated version.

      9. You can Hide + Lock s!mpL3 LAN Messenger so it'll require a password in order to "Appear". To enable this, go to the Security Preferences.

      10. Note that versions after 2.9.8.1 are not compatible with previous versions due to the encryption used being changed. I recommend using the latest version, or at least use the same version over the LAN.


      Important Notice:

      I will not be releasing the source code, however, I might share some parts of code if requested...
      If you choose to de-compile this software, don't release the source code.

      ----------
      edit: this is probably in the wrong place, can a moderator move it to wherever it belongs?
      ----------

      is there any way to completely disable TCPTimeout and make TCPRecv() wait indefinitely? maybe setting it to 0 or -1 or something? 
      the docs doesn't seem to mention any way to disable it

      - the underlying C code would set SO_RCVTIMEO to 0 , aka

      DWORD timeout=0;
      setsockopt(s, SOL_SOCKET, SO_RCVTIMEO, &timeout, sizeof(timeout));

      Hi there,
      So I've created this very simple "chat" program so that my brother and I can quickly and easily share text and links to other computers on the network. It just reads/writes to a text file that the script interprets/formats appropriately. I will put the script it in a shared network folder and then any of the computers can open and use it.
      For displaying the "chat" I'm currently using an embedded IE browser and formatting the text via HTML, but I've realized that this will cause problems with opening the links because it will use IE instead of the system's default browser (Chrome in our case). Any suggestions? (To be clear, I'm specifically looking for assistance on having text with clickable links that will open in the default browser.)
       
      For anyone interested, here's the code so far:

      I have had several people ask for this, so I decided to work the algorithm for it and this is the result.
      What is it?
      A Gateway Proxy Sends and Receives Data Unmodified.
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_server
      What is it used for?
      You can use it as a gateway, relay or router between two known static IP addresses.
      More information is in the header of the script.
      Download: LocalGatewayProxy.au3
      You will need WSA_NBTCP.au3 from here:
      https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/191954-wsa_nbtcp-v100-udf/
      If you have any questions or problems, let me know.
