This very simple Chat program was written by using VC++ 6 under Windows 2000. CSocketCli program creates a client socket. CSocket program creates a server socket. If you run the client program, you must specify the address of the other computer in the IP Address editbox in "the server program".
If the client is running but the server isn't running, you will receive an error in the editbox down in the client program, but if you connect you will receive "Connected" message in the chat editbox in the client program.
When you run the server, you don't need to do any thing; just wait until some client program connects with the server. This program handles multiple clients and you can have private chat with friends.
Important note: If you run the Client and the Server in the same computer, please write in the client IP Address textbox the address 127.0.0.1, then press Connect button and you will be connected to the server.
