Default An activity by user B trigger an event for A

Wasn’t sure the best way to ask this one, I think better to describe what I’m trying to do:

I am creating an online dating site (like americansingles.com, etc) and want to allow chat between to members. What I want to do is what several of these sites do: if a user B clicks on “chat with user A” a chat window a new browser window opens for user A! Note that the page was not reloaded by user A. This seems imposable to me since this is a stateless protocol and the server has no way to affect user A.

Any thoughts on how I could do this? Also, I haven’t yet found a good component to handle chat (I’d like to do one-on-one and multiple user rooms); any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help, Mischa

i don't think that asp could manage well online events and you could use refresh tag to do that.... (i think that languages for ex. java you can do applets which connect users to server is the best for online events)
you could use application variable with the Request.UserHostName to identify and map requests...
