If you use a Linux computer inside a WINDOWS network, you feel alone and disconnected because you are not able to use NetMeeting or WinPopUp. LinPopUp, coded by Jean-Marc Jaquet, provides a Linux replacement for WinPopUp.
The program functions like the WINDOWS version but looks much better.
A working Samba
server on the Linux computer is necessary for using LinPopUp.
Because of better security and comparability, samba 2.0 or higher
is recommended. You must add the following entry into the samba
configuration file smb.conf in the part [global].
To receive mail it is not
necessary to keep LinPopUp running, unlike the WINDOWS version.
Plus, if you are not logged in you still receive your mail.
The program is available at http://www.littleigloo.org/ .
