You can use Winsock. You'll be able to find examples of this on www.planetsourcecode.com or www.vbdiamond.com. There are example chat applications there.

I assume that this is for a game seeing as your posted in the games board. If so then you could use DirectPlay.

A good suggestion from Banjo. I have a good DirectPlay chat program but I'm having trouble attaching it to the forum.

I tried again and repeatedly got an error message. I have contacted the Webmaster and will upload it when he has fixed the bug.
