We have each client open a ServerSocket at startup and register its address and port at login. Then if the server wants to send a message to one or all clients it can talk to their ServerSockets. We've done this with a fat Swing client and with a browser plus applet. Does that sound like what you need?

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Welcome to the JavaRanch! Could you change your display name (click here)? Basically it should be a first and last name (If you'd like a more thorough reason as to why I'm asking you to change your name, check out the Naming Policy.)

Thanks! And again, Welcome to the JavaRanch!
I agree. Here's the link:
