    What OS are you using?

    Perhaps this site can help you further.

    [EDIT]
    There's a section there about messaging. A part of that section is about an open source chat program.

    I assume you are making a client for the Windows operating systems.

    I would suggest using Windows Sockets or "winsock". Here are some resources and tutorials:

    Windows Socket Network Programming

    Developing for the Internet with Winsock: Everything You Need to Master the Art of Creating Windows Internet Software

    Johnnie's Winsock Tutorial

    Winsock Development Information

    I hope that these links are helpful to you SlimDady.

    I'd recommend SDL_net. It's portable.
