thx, im checking out virtualbox, i has a Ubuntu linux installed (wubi) but
kinda hard to work when you code the server app on linux and client to be run

What runtime library are you using? With Tango, I'm pretty certain you can use the same code almost identically on both platforms. You just have to compile it twice. (oh..and probably add some code so it runs as a daemon.)
