I have a project I am currently working on and I need users to be able to chat online amongst themselves. Please experts, what are the basics I need to know and implement so that this becomes possible.:?: :cool:

Hello experts!
I believe there's someone out there with an idea on how I start off on this project. I know that there would be a server and a client module. Since it is a webbased app what port do I listen to and how do I go about it?:)

try doing a search for "shout box" it's a simple realtime message posting thing-a-ma-jigg. if you need something more advance then just search around for opensource chat scripts
