Stage one (1) of P-Net Chat was added today.... This has been a dream of mine that I've had for a LONG time. Today, we entered into a new era for P-Net.

Instant messaging with FULL VIDEO AND VOICE is here.... Play with it, and let me know what you think!

Editorial to be written....

OK, it's now in the who's online section. Just look at who's online, and it will show the status. Non-subscribers can now see who's online but not location.

Some members are having problems... port 1935 is our chat port, you'll have to open that up in your firewall....

I'm pretty sure that port 1935 is the problem. Some ISP's deny access to this port. Flash will default to 1935, and if that's not available, it will try 443 (HTTP SSL) and then 80 (HTTP). So if I'm going to fix this for everyone, I'll have to disable SSL (not sure I can do that) and THEN port forward all 443 traffic to port 1935!

I think I found a temporary solution... I did the port forwarding. I spent A LOT of time on this. Oh, and Eileen, please let me know if you can't view threads. If anyone is having problems, please delete all your cookies and cache and try again. You may even want to try another browser (for example safari). Let me know...

Chat is currently down while I try to fix it!

Brandan

OK, it's back up.... Anywhere you see a green or grey circle, click it to try to connect to the other user... Also, if you have an apostrophe or an ampersand in your username - or any other nonstandard character, it will prevent you from using chat.

Right now the two users that have problems are: Merry & Joyful and Greg's Wife.

SOOOOOO I'm going to try to work out a solution.

Would it be easier to just change my name?

We can try that as a temporary fix...

Hey! I have tried out this feature with Dustin last night, though he was guest pry before ya fixed it. And I think its really cool feature! i know he was talkin to Just Grace as well. I think its really awesome to have this, I've always wanted to be able to talk with some of you! hehe I use aol instant messanger for my friends, but this site is cool. I dont have webcam or mic but maybe someday I'll get it.

Great job Brandan and Thanks for all your hardwork! God bless you very very much!!!!

Ok, I think the firewall issues are resolved. Scott, can you try it out sometime?

There is going to be some work today and tomorrow to try to fix some minor bugs, so the chat software might stop working for some periods... But it will be fixed completely soon, and then we can focus on group chat...

That's easy to fix for people, all they need to do is update their Internet Explorer because they work for me and I have the latest version which I think is IE7.

Or, they could try Firefox. It's a good, light weight browser that uses less system resources.

Can't connect in Linux.

The login for flash is running, but a failed login attempt gets bounced backed.

Nope. Nope. You're welcome. :)

Not a big deal... I can always use my laptop but I *love* my Linux machine :D

I'm guessing it has something to do with FLASH on linux.

Yeah, same here.

Sadly, Adobe doesn't have a x86_64 flash player for Linux, and I'm using a 32 bit version. I've tried other FOSS flash players, but to no avail.

Someone is lending me a macbook this week so maybe I'll use that instead. :)

The strangest thing is that he offered it to me last Saturday at work. Apparently he has no idea what to do with it - lol.
