how would i do an ip chat with another computer i think i need the tcplistener and the tpclient types but i dont know how to connect and define ipendpoints or something. Also do i need the listener in a thread? please dont tell me to use the winsock activex control because i am trying to learn the sockets in .net

Thanks for any help

This article discusses making an IP chat using sockets in C#.


If you're not comfortable with C#, I can translate it to VB.NET.

timbo87, can you translate the code for me. because i am having the hardest time finding a simple vb.net chat whether it be tcpclient or just a socket. all i want is a simple code without classes or module connecting to an ipaddress and port and sending data and having another textbox show what was received

Any Help is helpful thanks

Hi gangwisch,

I have the client side of Timbo87 link if you still need it. I modified it to work with RichTextboxs in VB.net.
I can post the code tomorrow 4-20-2004.

i've been told that many times. I have just resorted to using tcpclient and tcplistener without a socket
