As freddycodes said, it is going to be whole lot more expensive if you are to customize it... (Basically building it from the scratch...)

Just calculate how long it is going to take it for you and multiply it by your hourly rate... For example, if it were to take 80 working hour, which is two working week, then 80 x ??? is how much you should charge...

If you don't mind learning the tiniest bit of java, you could save yourself a lot of time by looking at some of the free XMLSocket servers (especially those with Flash SDK's). Fortress is one:

Oregano is another:

colin moock's unity is pretty cheap and a little easier to come to grips with:

for a few extra bucks you can grab one of his app packs, too, and customize to suit your needs. anyway, it's a good starting point...
