Some question about design

Hello!

We have a Windows form application that use remoting to communicate with a
server running some additional software that the windows form application is
using. Note the Windows form application is most certain running on its own
computer(client). We call the server that the Windows form application is
communication with for "app server".
In some special cases the Windows form application and the app server might
be running on the same computer.

The Windows form application is a GUI with many different functionality and
dialogs and forms.

Now to my questions:
Assume I want to have the same functionality and GUI from a web application
as I have from the Windows form application.
How much is it possible to use from the Windows form application when
writing the the web application?
How much do I have to rewrite in asp.net ?
Is the best solution to use asp.net ?
Do I have to change anything in the app server when handling communication
from the web application?
The best would be if the app server would be transparant meaning that both
the Windows form application and the web application
work the identical against the app server so no change is required in the
app server.

As I have understood this, is that asp.net application is running on a web
server(IIS for example). You write your asp.net application by using
the visual tool editor similar to cunstructing GUI for windows forms and
handling event and so on.

The browser will present a GUI using HTML that has been sent from the web
server about the same look and feel as you have when running the web
application from within visual studio. I here assume that you can test and
run you asp.net application from within your IDE in visual studio.

Now to my questions:
That will will depend on how well your application is written. if you
have at least two tiers UI and the REST, then you are good. YOu willl
have to just write the Asp.net layer.
Also you might want to go over the REST just to make sure it will work
in web environment( more than one request at a time)

YOu will still be able to use your existing app serve even with the
web.app
