Huh? You probably misread it. We have positive experience with serving 800 
simultaneous sessions with each sending and receiving messages every second.
And it was all running on the two accounts.

Hm. Ok, that is possible way to go. But your solution is targeted as 'chatting 
out' to other network while we targeting _receiving_ incoming chat sessions 
from otherwise incompartible networks.

File transfer was considered but was not set as a priority.

Ok, thank you. I'll give it a try.
