Clients connect to a server, not the other way around. What do you mean exactly?

 Thanks for your fast response.

  I want my  Application to let user of server knows who is Online.

Online means : Client Applications running and not connected to any server.

ALL Clients has the same Port namber, and the server as well.

This is not possible, you can not make a connection to a client...

I think you are getting confused with the terminology
socket clients connect to socket servers.
but there is no reason why your client "application" can't have a socket server on it...
then your server "application" can try to connect to all of the client "applications"
note; your server "application" would need to create a new client Socket for each connection
