You could try something small like an FTP program, text editor, chat program, XML related programs, etc...

Have fun.

If you want to implement something like FTP, check out Request for Comments(RFC). You might want to start with something a tad easier like SFTP, simple file transfer protocol(RFC 0913). Of course you will need to be familar with networking concepts.

What about a simple 2-person game played over the internet. Maybe something like tic-tac-toe (very simple). You've got a lot of elements in a program like that. Once the basics are done you might think of adding some stuff like an ongoing chat during the game, dealing with dropped connections mid-game, cheat detection and avoidance.

Just some ideas.

How about a simple shopping cart application. Helps you learn session management, flow control etc.
