Send object from one app to the other

P: n/a
I have a distributed application that everyone will be running the same
core application, but some may have a different interface they use
because of different roles. I need to send a complex (yet very simple)
object to other computers. One person will need to send a different
person a filled object, lets call it Cat, and Cat.Name = "Felix" and
Cat.Color = "Red". Person A filled this information in, now needs to
send it to person B so they can do what they need to do with the Cat
object and then send it back to person A. All I need is a simple way
to send that populated object between the 2 people. I already have the
ip addresses being logged and all that kind of stuff is taken care of i
just can't seem to find a simple way of doing this. Thank you very much
in advance.

Look into Remoting, as well as webservices.

You could serialize the object and then send it thru a TCP/IP socket.
Your app on the other end could then deSerialize and read the properties.
