If you wait for 24 hours I probably can give you some basic code for IPX/SPX networking. I just don't have the right documentation here at work, so I will take it from home tomorrow .

thanks for the advice, but i would really like something on ipx/spx, the chat program is just something i want to start with, but i would like to use ipx/spx for other purposes too.

I have put some documentation at http://www.globalxs.nl/home/b/berox/ipx.zip ... I hope this is enough to create your own chat client.
The zip file contains documentation that tells you which calls you can make to the ipx-driver and how the datastructures look like.  I didn't include the source code cause it was in C and ASM but if you want to have the source just let me know !
If this document isn't satisfactory I still got another one somewhere ...

Good luck!

Thanks alot Berox !
This will be of great help!
I can understand a little bit of C, can u please send me the source for that driver. My knowledge of asm is little, but with some help from a C prog, my task should be much simpler.

Thanks again

The full source that was attached to that document can be found at : ftp://x2ftp.oulu.fi/pub/msdos/programming/net/ipxstart.zip

As I said before I also got some other documentation. That document got basic source - code and includes a text file in which is explained how the structure of your program must be to create a chat client. You can find this zip file at the following location : http://www.globalserve.net/~subdeath/files/ipx.zip

Sorry that I don't know any pascal sources (or I had to write it myself, but I leave that to you)
