I  will tay to show a only the way to write your classes:
Class mainListener extends Thred
{
   public void Run()
   {
     ServerSocket oS = new ServerSocket .....
     Socket oSoc;
     ServereThred oThred ;
     while (true) // !!
     {
        oSoc = oS.accept();
        oThred = new ServerThred(oSoc);
        oThred.Start();
     };
   }
}
Class ServerThred extends Thred
{
  Socket oComm;
  public ServertThred(Socket oSock)
  {
    oComm = oSock;
    // with this socket you will comunicate with a client
  }

  public void Run()
  {
    //Making a comunication with a client
  }
}

I hope it will help to you !
