Stream data from IIS server

My requirement is to stream realtime stock-quote data to HTML page
using IIS. Is there any workout apart from creating ISAPI extension?

Why would you need an ISAPI extension? Send it out from an ASPX page that
gets the quote data. Provide more specific info about your requirements, get
more specific answers to your post!

Not really, and even creating an ISAPI extension isn't feasible.

What I would do is either embed a Windows Forms or ActiveX control in
the page, or use AJAX (the XmlHttpRequest component) in javascript to make a
call to the server periodically to find out the quote information.

Having a persistant, open connection doesn't scale well.

Also, the nature of http is such that it won't support having a
persistant stream of information sent to a browser.

Hope this helps.
