    That is a pretty complex site.

    Even if you use ASP and Access as a back end you will need to send information back and forth to flash. To do that you should use XML.

    I don't know what aspects your are enquiring about, maybe give us a small example of what you would like to implement and I will let you know my thoughts on how it can be done.

    Thanks

    Luke

    OK, 2 options for multiuser chat:

    If it is real time then it is probably done with a socket server. See the FAQ for information about the socket servers:

    http://www.tupps.com/flash/faq/xml.html

    If it is done in an offline or nearline state (eg chat sessions are not instantanious) then it is probably done with a database and PHP kicking back the XML document of all the messages that the person has received.

    Thanks

    Luke
