    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

4. Choose your deployment method:

choco upgrade lan-messenger.portable -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:

choco upgrade lan-messenger.portable -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0

Screenshot of LAN Messenger

LAN Messenger, which is currently available for Windows, Mac, and Linux is a free and open-source instant messaging application. Through a local network, this application will foster instant communication, eliminating the need for having a server and internet connection. More than just for instant messaging, it also comes with extra features, such as transferring files, archiving of past messages, and being notified of upcoming events.

The following are some of the features of LAN Messenger:

  • Instant Messaging: You can instantly connect with other users on the network and start a conversation.

  • Private Network: No need to worry about your privacy. AES encryption with RSA offers industry-leading security.

  • Broadcast messages: You will have the option to notify all users within the network or choose specific users.

  • Transfer Files: Forget about email attachments. This app makes it easy and hassle-free to transfer files to other users within the network.

  • Group Contacts: You can also easily organize people in your contact list. This will make it easy to find people when needed.

  • Log Messages: Previous conversations can also be archived, which you can access at any given time.

  • Works without Server: One of the best things about this instant messaging application is the lack of server that is required, making it less complicated.

  • Works without Internet Connection: This messaging application utilizes a local network, which means that you can send messages even without internet, which is beneficial in minimizing possible threats.

  • Supports Multiple Languages: You can choose from the different languages that will be used as the medium for the user interface.

  • Multi-platform Support: Regardless of your operating system, whether you are on Mac, Windows, or Linux, you can use this messaging application.
