How would you be able to modify the program to have multi-way chat and 1 host? I'm trying to get it to be able to have 1 computer to host and have multiple clients connect to the same host but so far it doesn't make sense to me as to how I can get 2+ computers onto the same connection.

it is really easy.. u need to know a bit on networking. well now for this app u cannot use a peer2peer design (actually u can but then it gets Very Complicated). so now u need a client server design.. this way all the clients register themselves with the server (i.e they logon). then the server sends a list of all available contacts (online folks). when a client initiates a conversaion with one of them it really tell the server to notify the other client about it.

from this step onwards u get a choice:
1) send all messages through the server to the other client and visa-versa
2) initiate a direct connection with the other client by using the information provided by the server. then both clients connect to one another..

for a group conversation u'll need to use choice 1 only.

a pooling mechanism is necessary on the server side for choice 1

its good BUT definatly not hte best , neither is mine but here are a few things in mine that you should consider intagrating into yours , i have edited a proper email function that stops overflows on line , so that whe na picture loads it wont error out , hte only thing that cant be fixed is somtimes you get a integer overflow expression for some reason , and you can sufeccfully connect to an ftp with mine and send commands to it , you cant do that on yours becuase no matter what he sends your nick name with the message , when you go to ftp or email on mine , you nick name gets cut out., so really its 3 programs in one, dont call it the best chat program ever man , there is along way to go before its the on a lighter note your use of verifing the integrity was a good idea i like it , your program was good so il give you some bits but dont think its the only one out there... Very Happy Very Happy

+ bits
