Ok so i made a chat program that works on Lan. Now i want to make it work through the internet. I can get the internet ip address. Something like 99.144.21.93.

SO in the socket i make the ip address of the server/client destination the 99.144.21.93. It doesn't work though.

Are you saying that The server is at that IP address and the client uses that address in a Socket trying to connect to the server?

Is there a firewall or other software involved?

No explanation then.
