This is what java was made to do. In Java a multithreaded tcp/ip server is easy. The rendering engine should be written in java and provided to the programmer as an API. Both renderers are used the same and you can setup any kind of client/server or better - peer/peer relationship.

The problem seems to be the FIREWALL more than the protocol per-se, but I suppose a wolf in sheeps clothing.. Anyway, we need to make people turn off their stupid firewalls. If everyone didn't use windows, firewalls wouldn't seem so important - nor viruses, but I digress.

I know I've seen a java, peering chat server out there, and jazilla, of course, as well as other java html rendering projects. Don't have the URLs..
