I am wanting to create a special chat plugin for minecraft servers, but before I begin I want to know if something is possible. Is it possible for a client to connect with multiple servers over the same port? If not then would it be save (not laggy) to have about 1,000 clients connect to a single server to send messages through. What server would work best for this? Finally, with most minecraft hosting companies, how many different ports are open for plugins to use? Thank you for you help.
