Hi, I have coded (and learned) the BeatBox with (chat) program from Head First Java. If I want to give the beat box program to my friends in other locations, should I change the IP address and the send the code to them. or can i just send the code which I am using.
I feel we cant use 127.0.0.1 IP address to send it to others.. Please clarify.

If your friends will be using 127.0.0.1 as the connection address, then your friend's server can only connect to your friend's server. They won't be connecting to your server. They won't be connecting to each others server. The client can only connect to the same server as the client.
