Hello all,

I am developing chat application(not applet) in java, I want it to be able to run over internet

I have tried it in LAN with Socket programming
I found something here
It is working fine

But how can i run it over internet:?:
:confused:
If i tcpserver.java(or tcpserver.class) to the web hosting server.
I will not be able to run server class that can listen to client.
Please clear my doubt as i am learning this for first time
If i am missing something please tell me !

you have to forwards requests on which ever port your chat server is listening on to the machine on which the chat server is located and if you have a firewall on you have to allow request to the same port through the firewall

I am not getting what you are talking:-/

After uploading my file to the web server(which i will get from web hosting company) without executing that file how can that application listen to the client port???

And i cannot setup the firewall rules in the servers firewall to forward the port.

Dail-up modems, ISDN, HFC and ADSL are all used for residential access. For each of these access technologies, provide a range of transmission rates and comment on whether the bandwidth is shared or dedicated.

I am a College Student

And not getting the points what are you talking

are you talking about Bandwidth of the server???
If it is

The bandwidth of the server is shared

@topest1. we can't really help you if you haven't a clue of what u are trying to do. I suggest you go to your college's library and pick up a book or two on Networking and Java Network programming.

Thank You for the support .././...../....

I will look for the book in the library

Once again Thank You../.../.
