SOAP (XML WebServices) is the approach currently used in new applications.
http default port (80) can be used for data exchange (if that is not allwed in firewall then nothing is)
Also soap is platform (and development independent) standard so different components can be
on windows/linux, created in delphi, java, .net etc.
