What type of internal chat client can we deploy on our intranet for employees to use when they are connected to our network? I'd love suggestions. All I know of is OCS.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

We use Pidgin Openfire Instant Messaging Administration in the organization that I work for.

Ramsey- We use SoftrosLANmessenger
One cool thing is that you can also share files of any size across the intranet. It is quick and easy to setup. Licenses are like $10 a pop and the Server Admin Plateform is not too expensive.

    This depends on features you would like to get with your IM. I mean offline messaging, message archive, file transfer, etc. What about an authentication options? I advise you to look over client/server IM software because it will never busy your LAN like a serverless software does. If you want to compare something new with OCS system try Bopup IM software.

    We use an XMPP server called Prosody, and Pidgin clients.  Both tools are open source and free.

    Spark is the one most users I know are using. Not a lot of issues, so it seems to suit their needs.
