    You should start with a little light reading on the concepts behind what a server is and it's function, as well as what a client is and it's function.

    You'll have to craft a basic protocol system that allows the clients to request a specific kind of information from the server. The protocol system on the server will process the request send out the requested data in a pre-defined specified manner to the client requesting the data. this data being the list of users connected.


    And as far as a userlist on the client goes, a simple ui list component would do the job. The client would nearly need to request the data and parse the response into the list component.
