i am in search of what i should need to learn to make a instant msging client. it would would work by entering a person's ip adress who is also running the program. also i would like it to have file sharing as well because i want to run this at school so i can grab certain files i need from home while im at school. i am not looking for the program itself but hints on what i should learn with python to get me started.
