sending message from web to IP Address

Hi

I have like 10 clients running around the city conected via internet to a
SQL DB, when I start the win application I sent the IPaddress of each machine
and store then into the DB.
I have a Web app like a main console where I see information regarding to
each app. I want to send a message to my win applications from the Web app.

my questions are:

If I now the IPAddress of a PC running a windows client, Can I send a
message from my Web Application to that client?

How should I start?

your web app cannot talk to the winapp (unless the win app polls the site).
use sql notification services.

note: if the sqlconnection is not held open, you can not count on the
ipaddress.

wow but holding the sqlconnection open does not sound good to me...because it
should be open all day as my app is running.
