Direct-Client-To-Client, How do I implement IRC's DCC protocol in my program? I can connect to a sender's port, but i can't receive any data, because I don't know how to send a reply back to the sender that I have received a packet.
thank you

Lots of possibilities to connect two clients:
just to name a few: Named pipes, Mailslots, Windows Sockets, DCOM

The correct choice depends on what you want. From your
question i guess you need Windows sockets. Delphi
comes with the winsock.pas unit. I used it, lot  of work
but pretty straightforward.

Good Luck.
