    i don't know the details of it , but u have to have the server multi-thread listen on the port that each client would connect on

    server
    listen on port xxxx
    when u get a new incoming connection create new thread
    send/receive what ever
    on client close kill thread

    probably something like that i'm still working on a smiler thing here

    thank you for responding.

    so, i have to use serversocket + socket to establish a server client thing.
    then use the thread thing to make it server- multi-client thing.

    something like that?

    and what do you mean by
    "on client close kill thread"?

    and what about multicast?
    do i still have too use it?

    idk about the multicast . but the "on client close kill tread" goes to the only way i saw how those are set up , where each accepted connection is handled by a new thread ,then when they disconnect it would leave a useless running thread , and u don't want threads that have no use slowing down the program , so u close/kill it
