Server Application need to handle HTTP(s) Requests...

Hi people,

i have a own server application (written in .net) which proceess
different message types, like XML, EDI, SPEC2000, SAP IDOCs. and so
on... this application is doing a lot of different work. Now a customer
want to send its data over HTTP/HTTPS..
The most customers are sending theire data over FTP/ASCII into a local
folder. The server app verifies and insert/updates the data into a SQL
Database. Now, when i set up an ASP.NET application to handle
WebServices or other HTTP(s) requests, i still need my server app. to
handle the data and also send back immediately a sucessfull/errorneus
response.

I thought about a web-hosting inside my server application. I heard
that .NET 2.0 provides some web hosting methods, but unfortunately we
are using .NET 1.1. I could also use some internal .NET remoting
between the ASP.NET application and the server application, but maybe
somebody else have better ideas how to solve such scenario?
thank you a lot,
Steven

Instead of reinventing a HTTP server, I'd rather create an ASP.NET 1.1 web
application running on IIS to handle these file uploads. If you've separated
your "receive file" logic from the "process file contents" logic, that shouldn't
be too hard.
