I am trying to make an IP chat using TcpServer.

As many people are behind a router, how would it be possible to connect to them directly?

I know how to call up my external ip, and how to find out my internal one assigned by the router, but how would i connect to the specific pc and not the router?

Sorry if it is a bit mumbo jumbo, pop a reply if you can help or anything!

Thanks

That's not your problem. Client contacts router to contact you, router will take care of routing, that's its job.
You never talk to clients behind a router directly.

Thanks very much - that does make sense.. i think the reason why i got all confused was because i was worried about my program interfering with two clients behind the same router... guess this would have to be a function built into my program to solve this

Cheers
