This paper focuses on collaborative writing developed using client I server computing and the Internet. The client application consists of Multi User Text Editor, which provides basic facilities for users to edit shared Rich Text Format (RTF) document. The RTF document is stored in a server and can be edited and saved by a client at a time. The latest updated file will be sent back to team members if the servers received refresh command from the client. The server is a program running on a known host, which is responsible for shared file storage, access control and managing concurrent access between different members of the same workgroup. All activities such as log on, log off, open and save document will be logged into a file by the server that team members can view it. In order to develop connection between client and server, this system uses Java's Internet Protocol Suite provided in java.net package. This package provides a set of classes that support network programming using the communication protocols employed by that Internet mcludes TCP/IP
