    Default Push Server

    HI!<BR><BR>Any of you has managed to make a real push server? I mean, not a page with a command for explorer to check it every a period of time. But a connection which is keep alive and where the server and the client can send info at any time.

    Yes. But it is a custom server, not an add-on or script for IIS.

    Using off-the-shelf components, you can build a simple server that will allow bi-directional communication between client and server, with either one invoking the request. This is similar in concept to Napster, Scour, etc. In my case, it was for a custom system that involved project management with real-time feedback from multiple entities that were spread across the globe. I also used UDP instead of TCP and created a custom &#039;spread-aggregate&#039; algorithm that allowed for only packets that were lost to be retransmitted, which gave an approximately 25% improvement in speed.
