Chat Program

I am trying to write a Chat Program that will work across my school's LAN, It is for my final Project, I need to know how to get to the network with Visual Basic. Any help would be amazing.
THANKS!

    [code]Imports System.Net.Sockets
    Imports System.Net
    Imports System.Threading
    Imports System.Text

    Public Class Tester

    Public Shared Sub Main
    Dim myTcpClient As New TcpClient()
    Dim myNetworkStream As NetworkStream

    Try
    myTcpClient.Connect("127.0.0.1", 12345)
    myNetworkStream = myTcpClient.GetStream()
    Catch ex As ArgumentOutOfRangeException
    Console.WriteLine(ex.Message)
    Catch ex As SocketException
    Console.WriteLine(ex.Message)
    End Try

    Dim myBytes() As Byte = Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("asdf")

    myNetworkStream = myTcpClient.GetStream()
    myNetworkStream.Write(myBytes, 0, myBytes.Length)

    Dim bufferSize As Integer = myTcpClient.ReceiveBufferSize
    Dim myBufferBytes(bufferSize) As Byte

    myNetworkStream.Read(myBufferBytes, 0, bufferSize)
    Console.WriteLine(Encoding.ASCII.GetString(myBufferBytes, 0, bufferSize))
    End Sub
    End Class[/code]
