I know of Brent's chat demo on lbpe but i was wondering if anybody has found out if there is a way to get it so its not just your LAN (like building to building).

thanks,

Are you meaning the server side and the address it gives to connect to? If you are firewalled, the program cannot discover the real IP (for that I know of). The firewall has to forward a port to the server.

Well for the server part i was thinking maybe of using a machine that is just laying around (doubt it because it doesn't have an OS on it right now i am using a linux live cd) or something. Would it be possible to use a website's server? I have a free website on netfast.org and was sort of thinking maybe i could somehow use that or something? i will continue to try to install windows on the spare computer though.
