DBabble Client
The DBabble client is included automatically within the server distribution. When your server runs, a Windows client download will be automatically built that is configured to connect to your server, and a link to download it will be placed on the login page of your server. If you wish to try it out without installing the server, you can do so by downloading it from our sample server at Free DBabble.

Server downloads will work until the end of the month following the date of installation, after which you will have to purchase or stop using them. See http://netwinsite.com/prices.htm for purchasing details. The windows client is included within the server package. The DBabble windows client never expires and is free for distribution.

A list of changes made in recent versions can be found on the DBabble changes page.


All new versions of DBabble are normally made available as a Beta release first. Both the latest Beta release, and the current release version are available here. Use the Beta versions at your own risk. Each Windows NT Beta version has been tested first on our local DBabble server which is used by all Netwin staff for our internal instant messaging, before being made available here. The latest Linux Beta version is always running at free.dbabble.com.

To receive email updates for new releases of DBabble, or any of our other products, see DNotice. If there is a unix platform not listed here that you would like a server build for, email support-dbabble@netwinsite.com and we may do one for you.

If you have any questions regarding DBabble, first check the FAQ, and if your questions are not there, ask us at support-dbabble@netwinsite.com and we will be happy to answer them.

The downloads provided here do not come with source code. We do sell licenses for the source code. See DBabble Prices for details.

You can download older release versions from the ftp directory at ftp.netwinsite.com/pub/dbabble or older beta versions from the ftp directory at ftp.netwinsite.com/pub/dbabble/beta. Sometimes we upload versions newer than the current Beta release. These are often untested and can be found at ftp.netwinsite.com/pub/dbabble/beta/ask
