program is a serverless multicast based instant messenger. Currently
it's limited to multicasting on a private network. It has been tested
on both blackdown and Sun JREs, versions 1.3.1 and 1.4.0.
The Pimentel release.
This version of the program was created as a demonstration for a
Computer Networks class. It is fully functional, but there are a
few things to keep in mind. It is not secure and very dependent
on a reliable network. If you really want to use it, it's up to
you to provide a reliable and secure network. We also made a few
assumptions to make our job easier, so if you want to use it on
a production network, read the source, find the assumptions, and
make sure you understand them.
release is named for the professor of the Networks class.
