I was hoping the somebody could help me with this. I recently made a chat app with client and server works great on my local network. You know 2 or more clients connect to the server and chat.
However, I would like to beable to use the same app (if I can) so that a friend mine and myself can chat even though he is not connected to my network.
I tried just giving him my server info (IP and socket). I thought he might beable to connect thru his internet connection.
Anyway, it didnt work.....I am new to java and networking/internet connections thru java. So I know I must be missing somthing big.
Can this work and if so how.....
Thanks for all your help
