I have done the GUI but i am having a little problem with the transfer protocol should i use UDP or TCP and how

You're probably better off using TCP since it has built in error checking and makes sure the packets are put together in the same order as they were sent, something which UDP will not do for you.

Take a look at the classes Socket and ServerSocket, should get you off to a good start.

Without a server you may have a problem getting the IP addresses of the two machines that need to communicate. JmDNS can be useful in that case.
