I would start by writing/getting some library file for IPx.  This will mean you will have to learn about the protocol.  Which is always a good start.

Ralf Brown's interrupt list is probably one of the most comprehencive lists of APIs available to DOS based progams.  It would be a big help if you go to write your own IPX libary

If you don't want to go into that IPX stuff, here is how I'd do:
all the communication and data need to be exchanged between users will be made through a file (or many) which resides on the server. So, every user reads and writes to that file. U don't have to care what the protocol is. Is not so elegant, but is the easiest way and the clue
Let me know if u want more help

I've got a document on IPX programming. Send a mail to vx@engineer.com and I'll send you the document.

You need to have the Network API related to your network system. It depends  of your instalation. In Pascal is very difficult to make an interface to Network System. I preffer to use an Windows environment language

mlaiosa: Oh! Now I see, I sent you the document. I didn't really bother checking the writer - my fault. Do you need any help programming IPX?

abri: I could still send you the document. Just send a mail.

abri: Do you have problems using the IPX unit? If not, please reject the old answer so I can post a new one :)

I have written a chat program once (2 years ago). If you want I can send you a SOURCE.
The program was made to communicate in DOS and only DOS.
