    Default push can't be done with HTTP...

    ...and HTTP is *the* protocol of browsers. You have to use a different protocol, and that means using either some ActiveX control or some Java applet that sets up a different connection via a different socket than the one being used by the browser.<BR><BR>If you want to see a Java applet doing this, go to while some baseball game is being played, find the baseball scoreboard, and click on one of the "live gamecasts". A window pops up and you get connected to a system that pushes bare bones minimal info across the "wire" without needing refreshes.<BR><BR>This is *not* for the faint of heart!<BR><BR>
