http://www.flashnexus.com would be a good place to look. You run the server, so you can send/receive messages.

Bit of confusion here. The XML socket is for connecting back to a server. It is not possible to to connect to flash clients together.

The Flash Player cannot accept a socket connection, it can only make a connect to the server that the flash was delivered from.

If you are looking for a p2p chat client one of you will have to run a XML socket server on your local machine. As everyone else said have a look at flashnexus.com

Alright i checked out flashnexus and it was pretty cool. But that doesnt help me learn... My question now is this...
How do i sends messages to a server. and... how do i receive messages and take that message and pick certain words out flip them backwards and send them back? (Which is what u have to do to connect to an irc server. Isnt their any tutorials on making a basic chat application???? Ive looked everywhere. In the help files of flash5 it gives a very basic examples. But it states it is a "basic" chat program like it wouldnt be nuthin to make. I am knowledgable with sockets since ive made a socket bot that connects to irc servers with a real host. I just need to look at some examples or have someone gimme some pointers thank u (http:/www.digger55.net)
