Chatting window

As we have clients using our software all over the country ( Brazil ) and as these clients need to talk to us now and then we thought it would be great if they could do this using our software.
So the idea is they could pop up a chat window and chat with any of our atendent without closing it or using other program or midia.

What would be the easiest way to acomplish this task?
Of course I'd appreciate some code if you have any.

Thanks in advance.

Lee:

I downloaded these components and compiled the chat examples. The chat server is ok if I connect it through a local net but if I run it on a web server I cann't  connect it anymore.

Would you please tell me where I am going wrong?

Thanks.

you probably have the chat apps port blocked with a firewall
check for that :)

hi, Reginaldo (remember me ? ;-)

most of such chat programs use ports which usually blocked by firewall, if you have many clients scattered through the country it will be difficult for them to adjust ISP's settinigs, so I see few options:

1) write a soft which uses 80 port for data exchange and put some proprietary server in your office to handle that exchange
- this one tough & cool, but requires a lot of work to be done

2) use ICQ ;-), of course it is not commercial system you can rely on, but it can help

3) use on-line form on your server, so when client submit a request for help you get a email at once
