Hi, im a kind of newbie to the whole networking area. I am thinking of trying to modify two programs i have to implement a chatroom. One of the programs is a server, the other a client.     I will have to have use some html pages so I was thinking of using a tomcat server for the html and then using the server I have written to handle client connections. So tomcat will serving out a server, is this feasible and if it is, is it practical?.
This is just an idea for an individual project so any other suggestions for similar/different projects would be great.
Cheers.

If you are looking for a challenge, I would suggest setting up an IRCD server.  There are multiple client builds that you can use, several of which will work with windows.

Try http://www.freshmeat.net or google yourself an IRCD server.

http://www.dal.net has a link to a public ircd if memory serves correctly.  I had a lot of fun just goofing with the IRCD and gaining more knowledge of the ins and outs.

Hope this helps!
