I want to create a peer which is client as well as server. I am able to use threads to create server to handle many requests. But I should be able to create one more thread which will work as client in the same peer. How to create such different types of threads. I am not able to find out. Please help me.

As far as a Thread is concerned, it doesn't care whether the code it executes is acting as a client or a server.

You will probably find it easier to develop the classes for server and client separately - once you have verified they are working correctly, then work on the application combining both functions.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
