    Yep. File uploads could be a problem but with less than 200 users, you shouldnt have much of a problem on a decent "shared" hosting account. The only thing I could see is maybe the host getting upset by the cpu usage. But even less than 100 shouldnt be a problem for anyone.

    mIRC is good. I should have posted before that if you have a large board and expect a lot of chatters, flashchat may not work well unless you have a virtual dedicated or dedicated server. It does consume mysql when you have a lot of chatters. 200+ chatting at the same time.

    Re:

    Flashchat works pretty good. Its only 5 bucks so you cant go wrong. Go to tufat.com. It also integrates into VB so your users only have to click a link to get on with their forum username. You could also use RealChat but its expensive and you'll need java (which you obviously have) and ssh access on your server. I have worked on sites for a long time using flashchat and only had one issue about a year ago. Just make sure you chmod your files and your golden!

    The simplest is to use an IRC client with SSL enabled. for example, MIRC+SSL

    I am using an IRC based chat now and lots can't get on because of Java permissions and browser issues.

    Looking for a better chat program to use that is VERY SECURE.

    Lots use Flashchat but I recall awhile back it being exploited so it worries me. Is it secure now?
