Am new to the world of networking on LAN, i need help to get me in the right direction in creating a LAN Chat that has the capability to send file across the network. i want this chat to be able to handle more than 50 connections. how to connect to another pc in LAN connection? using ip address/ localhost or what? i have created client and server connection, in visual basic 6.0.but i dont get the connection between two pc. im trying to use localhost but it doesnt work. Any tutorials or sample code will do. thanks...

Try searching google first, or maybe planetsourcecode which have a lots of sample code.
