Windows Service utilizing ASP.NET technology

Is there a way to create a windows service that can communicate with an
ASP.NET page running IIS via HTTP protocol as the communicate medium?
The service will act as a listener on whatever port and I would like
that one ASPX file to do the processing. I would like to utilize the
stuff that's already built in for ASP.NET (cache, multithreading,
etc..) but I'm not really looking to create a full blown website.

Are you just looking for caching and multithreading (both of which a regular
application can do), or are you looking to create some web pages.

Windows services have no UI, so I am not sure why you would want to use
ASP.NET to drive your service since HTML is something that requires an agent
to render it.

Can you provide a little more information about your project and why you
think that ASP.NET is the way to go?
