Web Client and Server Application Event Notification

P: n/a
I'm working on a project that requires a Web GUI connected to a server
backend application. When a user clicks a button on the GUI the Web
client sends a message to the server application which updates a
database and notifies all Web clients on the LAN that the button has
been pressed. This is the simpliest form of the system which I would
then develop into a complete application. I plan on developing the Web
GUI as an ActiveX Document and the server application as a stand alone
VB application.

1. How does the Web client notify the server that a button has been
pressed?
2. How does the server notify all the other Web clients on the LAN?
3. I've been reading about Microsoft Messaging Queue (MSMQ). Is that a
good way of sending messages between the client and server or is there
a better way?

Any Websites, books, source codes, or example applications would be
very helpful. Thanks.
