The key in Visual C++ is the CSocket class, you can build any network application using this class.
Also you can buy this book:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0072121378/qid=1092180838/sr=1-10/ref=sr_1_10/002-0079756-6194428?v=glance&s=books

Why don't you get the source code of a free IRC application (e.g. http://sourceforge.net/projects/gaim/) to learn from? A 'fun' sample to study might be http://sourceforge.net/projects/windrop/

afaik does the MSDN help for WinSock include a sample chat-application.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/vccore98/HTML/_core_windows_sockets_in_mfc.asp
there are links in the text where you can download the chatter (client) and the chatsrvr (server)  
full source, MFC.

for general winsock programming:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winsock/winsock/windows_sockets_start_page_2.asp
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/winsock/winsock/getting_started_with_winsock.asp

hope that helps :-)

The two sample projects mcbastian is talking of are Chatter and ChatSrvr. You may get them from his first link above or from VC6.0 Professional/Enterprise CD.
