UDP Chat in local network (Linux & Windows)

I need a simple chat program written with Sockets in python using UDP Protocol.

The followings are the key descriptions of the project:

-There are 2 machines connected to a local WiFi network. One with Windows, the other with Ubuntu OS.

-The server is going to run in Windows (7);

-The clients will run on both Windows and Ubuntu machines.

-All (multiple) clients have to be able to publish and receive messages to/from each other.

-The scripts must be written with Python.

-The programs need to include UDP (the User Datagram Protocol).

- The python scripts should include the maximum possible coding flexibility and commenting in order to further modifications.

Note: I am currently using the program in the attached. However, there are 2 major problems with them:

1. TCP has been used, not UDP.

2. I can run the client only in Ubuntu and not in Windows because it uses the 'select' function to read data. I receive the error in the attached picture.

Finally, this may provide you with some ideas:
