Q1: When the author wrote that I will need to run two terminals, does this mean that I should run a terminal emulation software like PuTTy (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html ) on each WinXP machine ( terminal ) from which a user will send messages?
Q2: Should a copy of the files that were generated in Eclipse when the package (includes my .java files) was compiled be placed on each of the terminals?
Q3: Will I need to install Eclipse on each of the terminals to run the client chat application on them? [/list] Things I've tried:
I have tried running PuTTy on the client PC by specifying localhost - no luck.

If your application requires users to connect remotely, you will need to specify a port as well as a location. 'localhost' on its own is not enough.
1) see above
2) No, the clients will talk to your application using a standard protocol. Think of it like hosting a web application: the clients use a browser, they don't need your application running locally
3) no, see 2)

Eclipse is not needed, and neither is Putty (at least not from the way I read the problem description).
By the way, your display name is still not OK. It needs to have a first and a last name.
