talk is an old(er) program that comes with most distros, afaik. Have a look at:

$ man talk

With a bit more effort on your part (relatively simple to set up) you can set up an internal jabber server/system.

cheers,

Code:
YTalk(1)                                                                                                                           YTalk(1)

NAME
       ytalk - A multi-user chat program.

SYNOPSIS
       ytalk [-x] [-s] [-Y] [-i] [-h hostname_or_ip] username...

DESCRIPTION
       YTalk V3.1.1

       YTalk  is  in  essence a multi-user chat program.  It works almost exactly like the UNIX talk program and even communicates with the
       same talk daemon(s), but YTalk allows for multiple connections.

       The username field may be formatted in several different ways:
            name          - some user on your machine
            name@host     - some user on a different machine
            name#tty      - some user on a particular terminal
            name#tty@host - some user on a particular tty on a
                            different machine
            name@host#tty - same as "name#tty@host"
            aliasname     - an alias defined in your .ytalkrc
got it from fedora. .

I do not understand what you want to say. What is the issue? And I guess there is no problem with talk in your system. Only that remote system is refusing the connection. This could be due to the firewall if it exists or that talk daemon is stopped. Have a look at it, I am not sure how talk works internally.
