I am trying to make a Nt service that needs to do the following :
It an environment with 10 clients (Win98 and Win 2000).
If the users log on to the domain, a little program
sends a message to the service on the server.
If the users log off, the program sends again a message
to the service on the server.
By this way, the service can find out if a user is logged on or not.
Every day the service needs to check an Interbase database to see if a user already made some records into
it. If not, the service has to send a message to that user.
The little program at the users side, provides the service
through a message their IP-nr (dynamically) and their Windows-username (which is used in the database).
For the moment I use the components on the Internet-tab
NMMsg and NMMSGServ. But my service is not stable at all.
Can somebody help me with a complete solution to this problem.
On the internet I've only found some services that beeps every 10 seconds (not usefull in my case).
