Windows Service, Remoting?

P: n/a
I have built numerous Windows Services over the years, but until this
point, I have never needed a GUI to interact with them. Right now, I
have a Windows Service that runs FTP backup jobs. I want to build an
interface so that the server administrator can add/edit/delete backup
jobs. I have come to the conclusion that Remoting is the way to go.

I am having trouble finding a good example to achieve my goal. I have
seen examples in .NET 1.0 and .NET 1.1, but few in 2.0. The few
examples I have seen in 2.0 are for things like client/server chat
applications, etc.

Can someone either point to an example for the 2.0 framework,
preferrably in VB.NET, that will get me going?

Do you think the answers you have gotten are going to be any different? If
there is an example out there in VB, then you're going to have to find it.
You may not find it in VB. You may only find it in a C# form.

You should take the examples you see in using the other frameworks and
figure it out using the 2.0 framework. It's not that hard.

What you need is a good book on how to use .Net remoting is what you need.

Break out MSDN (and a strong coffee) and have a rummage through the ...

System.RunTime.Remoting.RemotingConfiguration

.... Class, particularly its Configure method.

The file format's a bit awkward at first (understatement!), but it's
probably the quickest and easiest way of getting started.
