I am writing a chat application involving one server and multiple clients. However, when clients chat, the messages should not pass through server.
This is what i intend to do:

> Send chat request to server
> Server replies with credientials(IP,Port) of the other client
> Establish a connection with other client and proceed with the chat.

I am facing a problem in the 3rd step. I dont know how to establish a connection between client and another client?.
For establishing a connection between client and server i have used socket and server sockets. What is the way of establishing connection between client and another client?

The clients will have to listen for incoming connections, just like your server...

Does that mean each client will also have a server socket associated with it?
