Notes on Networking

- By default, SnapTalk scans your local subnet with a UDP broadcast. If some of the SnapTalk users you communicate with are not on your local subnet, then you will need to add in their IP address range manually into the "TCP/IP scanning list" in the "Networking" window.

- SnapTalk now uses port 3484. You must install SnapTalk 3.0.1 on all your machines, or, if you still want to use SnapTalk 3.0 you must change the port number to 3484 and then quit and relaunch SnapTalk.
