I'm trying to find a really bare bones chat client. I only want to chat point to point.  I'd like these features -

- text (duh)
- a drawing board
- small executable

Anyone have any recommendations?  Its going to be used so another developer and I can communicate.  I don't want some huge, security hole laden, do everything program such as ICQ, AIM, MSN, etc.

Do you perhaps mean http://www.jxta.org/?

If so, I think the OP wants a *client* rather than a generic networking infrastructure.

If you dump the whiteboard requirement, then any IRC server can be setup on your machine, firewalled to external ports, then setup an SSH server on your machine. SSH tunnelling can then be used by your friend to automatically connect to your server transparently via SSH. (depends on having decent SSH client + server; Putty on windows will do the client + tunnelling, not sure about a free windows server though).

Alternatively, just use MS netmeeting? It's bad, but if it works first time for you (which it often does), then it shoudl be fine - and it does have a whiteboard.

malloc will be first against the wall when the revolution comes...

Yes, I'm looking for something simple, but with a tad more functionality than straight irc.

I don't really want to setup a server and all that rot.  If the app has a 'server' mode, where it listens for the other app to connect, thats fine.

I don't need the complexity of SSH and such either.  Although, more secure, I'm not trading secrets, so its overkill.

blah3 - What does OP stand for?  (Sheepish look, while asking)

Regarding IRC - you could always just use someone elses server till you need your own (if you ever need your own).  I've have made a BSD-licensed java IRC client API if you are interested (email me incase I miss this thread).

Will.

Yahoo Messenger and NetMeeting both offer the functionality you're looking for.

I've actually found one called Miranda, which allows me to run multiple clients from one app.  Smiley

I'd still prefer something that I just type in a friends ip and we can chat and use a white board, but c'est la vie.
