You can use Windows Messenger on a LAN just fine, or you can use a commercial program like Trillian Pro which supports Apple's Rendevous protocol for LANs.

Well, I can't find the proper settings on Messenger to setup a LAN intercommunication.Do you know exactly what to do?
Thanks.

You don't need any special software. Two people can just be signed into Messenger at the same time if you're both connected to the Internet through a router. My wife and I chat this way all the time.

Yep, MSN and Windows Messenger both use the Internet as a sort of switchboard to establish the connection, but once you've made the connection, you go PC-to-PC.
