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 among computers on the same LAN.
