    Lightbulb Sending data over the internet

    I had an idea for a progrma involves connecting to a series of other computers online and sending data between them all and I'm wondering how one goes about this(I would be willing to connect by IP's if its not easy to have it in a "server" type list or auto connect by password). Preferably some actual code or direct links to places that would help me would be nice... last time I asked for help I got told to google a whole bunch of different things and it took me hours to get anywhere.

    Edit:

    The general idea is to create a REALLY basic IMing program, which Ill then combind with a bunch of other things.
