Get other users online

P: 46
I have a VB.Net Application that runs on MYSQL Server. It is almost done but want to add an extra feature to enable users to view other users online. I have created form called USERSONLINE with a Datagridview which has columns Full name and Ip Address. I also have a main form called MAINFORM which displays current user's full name and department. What I want to do is that on load of the USERSONLINE form, All the other computers on the local area should send their full name in respective MAINFORM(which always remains open) into the requesting user's USERSONLINE form's Datagridview. I have done some research and what I found was mostly LAN Chat Application. My case is unique and currently do not have much idea as to how to go about it though I can get other connected computers names on the network.
