Is two way message passing possible using WebServices ?

I want my WebService to call a client's function whenever it receives a
message from any of the client. A way of notifying all clients when any of
the client send a message to the web service.

One way to do this is to create a mini-web server in each of your clients
(this is possible in 2005). Then a client can let the server know it's
address to connect to so then the server can call each client as needed.

DotNetDave -

This "mini web-server" that's possible in 2005, are you talking about the
"soap.tcp" and "hosting outside of IIS" that made possible with WSE 3.0, or
something different? I would really like to do this, but need the Web
Service to be able to all down to the "client" using HTTP/SOAP.

Thanks,
Brandon

No, what I am talking about is the HttpListener class that will allow your
program to respond to web request. For more info go to:
