A:
What you need is socket programming. I do not say that this is fairly
simple, but not too complicated. There is only a slight difference between
Windows and UNIX socket programming, thus you can learn any you know the
other.

As a first example I believe that the chat is a bit too complex. Start to
learn simpler examples.

Search socket programming tutorials on the net.

Peter
