You may not like the sockets, but they are the simplest way to do this.

Look at the delphi demos, there is a demo program that does exactly what you want.
Demos\internet\chat

Hope this helps

Indy Sockets

Internet Direct (Indy) is an open source TCP/IP socket component suite comprised of popular Internet protocols. Indy is the most comprehensive socket library in existence.

Both client and server implementations are included as well as full source code and comprehensive demos. The client components are easy to use because you write your transactions in a sequence and the servers are multithreaded. Indy Sockets includes support for C#, Visual Basic.net, Delphi, C++ Builder, and Kylix.

if you are using Delphi 7, you will find these components on the component pallette (indy tab)
