    If you google "vb.net chatting applications" you will find loads of examples.

    I'm sorry, but I personally won't get down in the weeds with you on this. Too many vulnerabilities exist and the potential for violating people's privacy could come into play. I'm not saying or insinuating you have bad intentions, just saying I don't want my advice involved.

    Besides, if I were you, I would find an out of the box solution that is legally covered by an entity other than yourself.

    Good luck! :)

    Probably the easiest way would be to use winsock for a client server application. Its pretty basic and if you google winsock you'll find lots of examples
