Introduction to I2P-Messenger[Bearbeiten]

I2P-Messenger is a simple QT-based (QT is a a cross-platform application framework), serverless, end-to-end-encrypted instant messenger for I2P ( SAM bridge). No servers can log the user's conversations. No ISP can log with whom the user chats, when, or for how long. As it is serverless, it can make use of I2P's end-to-end encryption, preventing any node between two parties from having access to the plain text. I2P-Messenger can be used for fully anonymous instant communication with persons the user doesn't even know, or, alternatively, to communicate securely and untraceably with friends, family members, or colleagues. In addition to messaging, file transfer is also supported.

The main window[Bearbeiten]

Symbols from the left to the right:

  1.  1. add a new user
  2.  2. open a window in order to find others users
  3.  3. settings
  4.  4. debug information

  6.  6. red button to close the messenger
  7.  7. (hidden) button 'About'

Settings window[Bearbeiten]

With the default settings I2P messenger runs optimally, only the users details should be adapted. It is advisable to write the language(s) you speak, and your the interests in the area 'User Details'.

The window where to add a other participant[Bearbeiten]

The fields in 'Options' are empty by default (example: nickname), without other information I2P messenger is able to find all publicly visible participants after clicking on the button 'Search'.

Chat window[Bearbeiten]

The online window: at the top there is two tabs for the online chat and offline chat; under it the news area of the interlocutor; in the middle a menu for options; in the lower part this your own area where to write. Of right side there is a optional avatar image.

Das Symbol links in der Mitte des Fensters ruft ein Dialog zum auswählen einer Datei auf, die verschickt werden werden kann; die anderen Symbole rechts daneben sind zum formatieren des Textes gedacht. Nachrichten können auch dann gesendet werden, wenn die Gesprächspartner offline sind; I2P-Messenger speichert sie solange es aktiv ist und überträgt sie, sobald die Adressaten wieder online sind.

Belegung der Tastatur: Die Eingabetaste ↩ verschickt den geschriebenen Text; in Verbindung mit der Umschalttaste, oder durch die Eingabetaste im numerischen Block (Entertaste), wird ein Zeilenumbruch erzwungen.

If the mouse goes to a certain place of the text area of the interlocutor, your own answer takes place exactly at this point.
