I would like to check if there are other copies of an app (from me) running on other PC's in a network.
I have never used CSockets but I think they could be a way to go.
Can an app on PC1 check if PC2 is running the same app via a CSocket.
Does this require any installed on the server to function.
What happens if for example the server is running novell.
Would firewalls on the PC's block communication.
And finally how rapid would the response be (assuming the app can respond immediately on reception of the query)
