I have developed a web application to mangage a process. The catch is that the tool which is used in the main process is a console application. Now since my application is a web application i want to poll each of the machines through a web service and read some files present at particular shared location of target machine.
Kindly let me know your ideas on how to proceed

@Sandeep: Requirement is that i have to integrate two tools, 1st is third party console application and 2nd is a web application which i developed. Web applcation is hosted at a central server. The console applcation which is hosted in seperate machines will generate a log file after the application is run, and the same log file is placed in a shared folder. Now from the server i should access the shared folder in target machines and read log files present there. I want to know how this can be done

Solution 1

Use the winsock control or some implementation of tcp or udp. You'll need a client on each machine to listen for the poll. Way too much code needed so please get started and then ask something specific if you get stuck.
