Now in people’s everyday life and work, we can’t do without the network, and for network applications, instant messaging software play an important role. If your local area network (LAN) cannot be connected to the public network or not convenient to use ICQ, MSN such kind of IM applications that are already well known to everybody, then please use BORGChat, which can completely replace them perfectly.

BORGChat is a powerful LAN instant messaging tool with fresh user interface and very rich functionality, developed by IOn (Ionut Cioflan) from Romania in 2002. It supports file transfer, group chat, private chat, private messages, message boards and different channels (including encrypted channel); supports BB Code, quick news… (Shift + F1….F12) and commands (/? /help /me /here /clear /nick, etc.).

In addition, BORGChat can custom the modes of message and status, and divides users in the LAN into groups, it also supports the blacklist, plug-ins and chat logs, moreover, BORGChat supports multiple languages.

LAN file transferring software is almost entirely monopolized by “IP Messenger (IPMSG)“, these stuffs just like ICQ, when everyone is using one of them, it is hardly realistic for you to change another. As for BORGChat, I will regard it as a enhanced version of IPMSG, so, if/when the functions of IPMSG can’t satisfy you, then do remember to try BORGChat.
