Can someone teach me how to run a chat program from my own computer?  I'm concerned with the IP setup stuff. Yea i found thst talk2me program before you posted your comment, fave_17, thanks for the help and "objects" i found the "babylon" chat program from the url u gave there. But i need to get to the end of how to run the chat program from my own computer. I got a book which give basic codings and instructions on how to create a simple socket chatting but i dunno how to run it, i can also run it from a "networked" computer. The book i mentioned was from the Deitel Deitel series.

If you are running the server and the client on your own computer, then the ip address that you will is 127.0.0.1. But if the server and client are on different computers, then for the client, you will use the ip address of the computer where the server is running.
