Network Project - Help Required
I'm admin of a network of around 100 PCs, and I want to make an IM system for it. I know there are plenty available, but we are on a budget and I want full customisability - so I intend to code it myself in Delphi. I can code the interface and so forth, but I don't know anything about how to transfer data across a standard Ethernet network through a Delphi app.
I need to be able to send two strings from one PC to another via the network - a message string and a sender string. Does anyone have a procedure or component to do this? Or does anyone know where I can start? I'm not too hot on advanced Delphi or Pascal, so all help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
