Hey Luis, did you get a chance to try out our product?

You could easily do the third option by combining the techniques
demonstrated here:

with the techniques demonstrated here:

The short answer is no.
Web pages are request-based.
The web browser must initiate all requests, the server simply cannot contact
a web client.

To get around this you must have more advanced code running on the client,
such as a windows forms application that can handle real networking code.
Remoting is generally the best solution.
