    Why not write an IM client or server that uses an existing protocol, such as Jabber/XMPP? Or, instead of writing from scratch, you can help in the development of an existing program.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar

    Hi

    Because the existing protocols are so complex for my application. I will be used just for a LAN. No need to implement a comples protocol!

    I've just recently completed a working windows chatroom type program. It works well with multiple clients. If you email me or something I'm sure I could help you out. I've only been using asynchronous sockets though, so it depends on your design.
