Communicate over network

I have two XP Machines connected through a Router on a network at home. Is there any software that will allow communication from one PC user to the other? I dont want to use MSN, but if possible, a dedicated Network communication program.

As always, many thanks in advance. T:-)

Winchat seems the ideal solution. It doesnt seem to want to wlrk though. Each PC can "see" the other, but when upstairs dials downstairs, it gets a message saying downstairs did not respond, and when I try to dial upstairs, it just keeps dialling with nothing showing upstairs.

I shall give utalk a try now. Thanks for the suggestions.

Nothing is ever striaght forward. I have downloaded and unzipped utalk, as per the suggestion made by ßéLâ. However, even though on the download site, it says its free, after unzipping, it requires a licence key to enable th einstall to take place. I can find nowhere on the site to obtain one.

Lantalk is not something I am prepared to use. Tried it before and ended up losing everything cause it messed things up enough to requre a format.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway.
