NodeScan is a cross-platform sharing software that is accessible and easy to use. Besides sharing files you can also use the program to create chat windows and communicate with your friends.This software will not run properly if launched from inside the zip file. Please make sure to extract the folder or otherwise copy the contents to your computer first.Clicking an account (row) in the accounts window will select the host for that account for subsequent connections. For example clicking "Find" in the Search window will search that host, clicking "Join" in the Chat window will establish a chat session on that host etc.Most services do not require the user to be logged in. Instant Messaging does.Double clicking a username in the list on the right in the Chat window will create a private message addressed to that user.How to use:
