There are tons of ways of doing this... some better than others depending on
what your core requirements are...

1) You can use pure sockets and do peer-to-peer

2) You can use pure sockets and do a server based setup to talk to other
users (nice for broadcasting messages)

3) You can do both of the above using either remoting or web services.

A google search should help here... If I can find some direct links I will
try to post them latter.

BTW, the sample code that comes with 'Programming Visual Basic.NET, version
2003' ISBN 0-7356-2059-8 has some great examples of this using various
technologies (ie: remoting and sockets).
