serverless lan chat application, qchat

qchat has a serverless mode. in that mode, it does not need a server to mediate among chat clients.
so we can chat to other client on the same lan, without install and maintain another server

1- install qchat
$ sudo apt-get install qchat.

2- enable serverless mode
chat --> serverless mode

3- by default it listen on lo interface, so we need to change it to eth0 interface
setting --> configure qchat --> network
on choose network setting, choose eth0

then all host that have qchat installed and enable the setting like above, will have in the chat list

below is the snapshot of it
