chat host needs to return online status - remoting(?)

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?QmlsbCBCb3Jn?=, Jun 20, 2005.

  1. Simple chat app where the chat host listens for requests and creates
    rooms/engages users as necessary. Visitor to, say, mysite.com enters her name
    and clicks 'go' to request a live chat. Right now she gets a time out if the
    host is not listening, but I'd like to show her a status message before she
    bothers trying, e.g. host is currently online/offline.

    So, I need a way to ping my asp.net chat host app to see if the host for
    that particular site is listening, which I could call on page load of
    mysite.com and update the status message. I know the host is listening based
    on a static hashtable of the hosts that are logged in, so it should be simple
    to ping that list, but I'm not sure the best way. Web service? Remoting?
    POST? Any thoughts are appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bill
