Hello everyone,

I am looking into how to go about performing API calls between separate applications on separate PC's (one app on one pc to the second app on another pc)without using remoting.

What I am looking to do is have a server that will communicate with a separate application running on a separate pc and perform a series of tests on the 2nd pc.

How do I go about something like this? Does anyone have any links for articles on this. There will not be any UI's. So it will all communicate to the buisness layer only.

you can do it with raw UDP communication, it works even with different platforms (Win <--> Linux)

Sounds like you want to create a socket server.(or something similar)
the following articles give an introduction to this with some examples

some other non-.net distributed library like DCOM, CORBA, or others. If you are working in .net, Remoting and Sockets are your best choices.
