Create Log Files for IP Messenger Installed & View History of Conversation

IP Messenger is a popular messenger software used to communicate between computers connected to a LAN. One of its major attractions is the non requirement of a server to start communication. In most of the companies, employees are using this tool to share short messages and files between computers in the same LAN. In case if you are using this application to send sensitive information to another user, it is a good idea to create a log file for IPMSG communication on your computer. This log file will help you to recover important previous conversation and details of file sharing and read the history of file transfer between your computer and other devices.

I do not think we can create log file for IP Messenger on server if server has no role (no participation) in the IPMSG chat.
