About KasaClient

This App enables you to communicate in real-time with friends and colleagues in a peer-to-peer or group environment using broadband network.

 

An integrated solution, it consists of client software that resides at the endpoint and server software that manages all clients.

 

Users may communicate by Texting, using Audio or Audio/Video.

 

You call friends (or receive calls) for one-to-one communication from anywhere in the world. During the conversation you may allow other friends who call to join the conversation, or you may call other friends to ask them to join the conversation.

 

Set up a Meeting, a Meeting, or create Hangout sessions and ask friends and colleagues to join in. Better yet, look in KasaBook for an interesting group and join in.

When the App attempts conversation with the remote server, your firewall software might prompt you for authorization. KasaClient uses a number of TCP/UDP ports which you will need to authorize before any conversation can take place. You might also contact us at support@Kasanoma.com.

 


Known Issues

 

Noise

The App cannot completely remove background noise during conversations. If you are in a very noisy environment it can result in inaudible conversation.

 

There is a real-time noise control slider available from the audio & video windows. Choose “Kasa > Noise” menu option and activate Noise Reduction.  When you confirm your choices, stop talking for a few seconds for a noise profile to be created.
