IM server fixed setting up a private password for user accounts

We updated Bopup Communication Server software and released version 4.3.15. This is a minor update of the IM server but it fixes the issue with setting password for an account in Private login/password authentication mode. It worked properly when a password set during account creation but not from subsequent editing users.

"User is typing message..." event is now supported!

We glad to inform our customers that new versions of Bopup IM suite are now available for download. Both the come with major versions because we did a lot of work, added useful improvements and fixed many issues. See what is new below.

User typing event
Firstly we need to say about very useful function. Maybe it is known from public messenger when users can see in their conversations that another one is currently typing a message or reply. Year, this adds interactivity interactivity and improves usability. When we see that the reply is being typed we do not close chat window immediately. And now our software provides that support too!

Download and update both the server and client parts in order to be able to use this function. The "User is typing message..." event appears every time in a conversation dialog of Bopup Messenger client. Delivery of this instant notification event is controlled on Bopup Communication Server and you can disable it from the Options dialog box by switching to Messaging tab.

Displaying a huge amount of messages on the server history
Management Console of the communication server fixes issues with showing a great number of messages and file transfers selected from a Message History. That issue also related to displaying some profile pages for account, group and/or news messages. Now data is displayed quickly and with no error even you select thousands records.

Fixed installation of the IM server with built-in SQL Server
Another important issue was installation of Bopup Communication Server with it's built-in database server on latest versions of Windows. Sometimes the setup fails to complete because no connection to the SQL Server could be established. That was a security problem because Windows requires a stronger password for built-in 'sa' account for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express that shipped with the IM server package. We did that.

Forget about duplicate versions of the messenger software in Add/Remove Programs panel 
Our customers that distribute and deploy new updates of the IM client using the communication server faced with the problem that previous version of the software might not be properly removed from Add/Remove Programs if the update was initiated under non-administrator user account in Windows. That was too old problem that we know about. Now the messenger software removes it's previous version during an upgrade with keeping all settings and message history.


Adding File Transfers to a messenger local history
Both Bopup Messenger and Bopup Observer clients fix error with adding and saving received and sent transfers to Message History. Now al file transfers are properly archived for a future review.

New version of the communication server improves and fixes security issues

In the latest days of the past 2011 year we released new version 4.0.4 of Bopup Communication Server. The new version adds an useful function which also closes an important security issue. That function is a password that can be set up on the communication server to allow or permit a remote administration of the IM server.

Prior versions of the communication server did no have any security functions and the Management Console could be installed on any computer in the Administrative Mode to manage and control an existing instance of Bopup Communication Server.

In order to enable the password proptection open the Options dialog box in the console and go to the "Interface" tab.

Click the "Allow remote management of this instance of the communication server" check box if you want to permit remote management of your IM server. Then enter a password that should entered in the remote console and in the Setup Wizard to protect your communication server.

Now the Setup Wizard asks for security password if the Management Console is installed in the Administrative mode to manage an existing installation of the communication server. That password must be entered on the page which asks for the name/address of the IM server.


The same password is asked when the remote Management Console starts. You can save the password by checking the "Remember this password on the next startup" option.


Please note that communication service on the server computer must be started during installation/startup of the console on remote computer.
