AutoIt Network Messager (ANM)

Recommended Posts

Matthew1344

I'm trying to figure out how to script a (relatively) simple messaging client with these criteria:

  • Send text messages between users on the network (peer-to-peer)
  • Both users (sender and recipient) will be running the client
  • Send via the user's IP address
  • I'd like to send it as XML via HTTP, but I'm flexible on this.
  • Does *NOT* use NET SEND
Obviously, the client will have to both send outgoing messages and listen for incoming messages.

I've looked around and haven't found any mention of anything like this, but please redirect me if I'm attempting to reinvent the wheel.

Thanks in advance!

i am pretty sure this or something like it has been done before. i can think of a couple that had a server side and a client side that are probably in the examples forum....

Hmmm... when I hear "chat", I think "irc" and assume there's a server involved somewhere. Is my assumption wrong?

Yes, your assumption is wrong. 'Chat' indicates conversation between people, it does not indicate that a server is involved.
