Custom C++ Network Chat APP

Hello

I want a network based chat application written entirely in Visual C++ (preferably 2008).

It should be multi-thread (if needed), TCP based chat application. Features should include:

- Connection in TCP (you choose the port)

- Data transfer should be encrypted. Encryption should be in a class with easy to modify style. So later I can change encryption algorithm and key. For now make them static.

- Text area which will show texts should support unicode/utf-8 chars. I don't know which, but it should display hebrew, arabic, etc.

- It will be used in network, it should have a list of people in network in this format:

IPADDRESS|NAMEOFPERSON

IPADDRESS2|NAMEOFPERSON2

IPADDRESS3|NAMEOFPERSON3

etc.|etc.

When app loaded, it should load IP addresses, names in a list, then should show status of user (online/offline). App could try to send a PING to IPs and find out if their chat application is running. Online/offline mode of users should be displayed in a nice UI button/color/text/etc. (user-friendly)

There should be 3 buttons in application (preferably with a keyboard shortcut)

a) Open link - will open last HTTP or HTTPS link sent by a user in chat.

b) Copy link - will copy last HTTP or HTTPS link to clipboard.

c) Launch UNC path - should open last UNC path in explorer, like \\PC-1\Share1

If button clicked but none of above links existed, should do nothing, no annoyin "Not found" messages.

- Should not have seperate window per person, it should display all received text in same window like this:

Person1: test message

Person2: test message

You: hi there

etc.

- Should have a little difference in color per user (but readable colors in white, like green, blue, etc)

UI could be like this:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

| | |

| person 1 | |

| person 2 | |

| person 3 | |

| | |

| | |

| | UNICODE TEXT AREA HERE |

| | |

| | |

| | |

| | |

------------------------------------------------------------------|

|button1 | |

|button2 | user input text box |send| |

|button3 | |

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Feel free to change UI, but above style is approximately what I need in UI, make it user-friendly please with interactive colorfull button/text/status indicators.

Thanks in advance

- All links in text area should be clickable and should launch in default browser.
- Should have a settings dialog for change font size and name.
- Should show ip address of user when mouse over on nickname.
- Should store all chat logs in a file.
- Should have a settings dialog for chat log path.
- When escape button press it should minimize in system try and should have a system wide shortcut like (CTRL+SHIFT+Z) for re-activating window.
- Have a menu or button for enable/disable launching of chat app in windows startup.

a) Maximum budget 1200$
b) Maximum deadline a week
