Network Assistant (Nassi for short) is a real-time communication utility for the office environment, including channels-based chat, shared whiteboard, message board and instant messaging. Doesn't require an Internet connection or a dedicated server (the program uses the serverless technology based on IP Multicast or broadcast) and is intended to be used in small office or home office local networks. Offers handy features such as user details, file transfers, remote processes control, remote screenshots, activity tracking and more. There are four types of chat channels in Nassi: general, announcer, password protected and private (person-to-person). The program supports its own instant messages and WinPopup / Messenger messages as well. In your chat phrases and instant messages, you can use graphical emoticons (40+ emoticons available). There is also the Shared Whiteboard feature: you and your friends or colleagues can draw on shared whiteboard. Using the whiteboard, you can explain concepts by diagramming information, using a sketch, or displaying graphics. The program's Message Board allows you and your friends or colleagues to share postings: the board automatically collects and displays postings from all Network Assistant users. The Remote Alerts feature enables you to define alerts on some remote events for a particular remote computer and also specify various actions for them. For instance, you may want to be notified when a certain remote user is typing into the chat window or when they take the screenshot of your system (this is yet another useful feature: you can view screenshots of a remote screen).
