What is a simple signal mechanism from Client to Server
Posted on 2003-03-11
I am developing a server application on Windows 2000 server, which uses FTP to download files (test results) from test stations running Windows 2000. The reason I wanted the Server to pull the file is because then the work station would not have to be automated to upload the file. I also understood it would be better security. The problem is that I do not want to disturb the work station while it is busy collecting data, because I am afraid of contention/timing problems. All I can think of right now is to have the work station send the server an email message, but there probably is a much better way. Hopefully it would be a very simple signal mechanism for the work station. Pardon my ignorance and thanks.
