[Nottingham] Easy network programming

Evening all,

I'm looking for a little advice on network programming.

My intent is to start a little project that involves a client posing  
as a host and other clients connecting to it. The clients will each  
send messages (text) and hopefully interact through some whiteboard  
like area where images can be displayed, annotated etc.

My (main) problem is that I have no idea how to handle connections  
over the internets; I did something similar with Java sending plain  
text messages at Uni a couple years back but that was all LAN based  
so I'm not sure if/how that scales.

The advice I'm seeking then, is frameworks to enable me to achieve my  
goals. The final software will need to be cross platform and I'd  
probably prefer a higher level language to enable me to rattle it out  
quicker and above all it's must be easy to use.

I eagerly await your advice,


- J
