SecureICQ Online-Help

We are very sorry, but we don’t have a ‘real’ help yet. Actually, there were many other problems we had to look after.
But here are some basic and maybe usefull things we found out while working with SecureICQ:

Client:
- Do not forget to set a server and port in the ‘Settings’-Window!
- When you are invisible, all others users will see you in their offline list.
- You can disable the ‘Message of the day’ in the ‘Settings’-Window.

Server:
- Make sure to check your configuration in the cofig directory. Otherwise the server won’t be able to start
- You must have MySQL installed!

 

Description of SecureICQ
===================

SecureICQ is an easy to use communication program. With SecureICQ it's possible to communicate in a very secure way. The secure communication is ensured by a 128bit encryption.

With the help of a clearly arranged contactlist it's possible to talk with your friends when he/she comes online. Even making new contacts is no problem, because of the easy search options. Of course, there's not only the possibility to talk with one person, but also with a whole group in a so called channel (or chat room).

SecureICQ is similiar to ICQ, but more secure because of it's higher encryption level. It works with Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000 and XP.

 

System requirements
====================

Windows 95, 98, ME, NT 4.0 (SP ???), 2000 oder XP

What can I do know ?
