Web application is hosted on a server publically accessble to everyone. Clients request the pages which are served by the server. Clients can submit information as well.
Remoting is used to connect two applications running on two computers. The connection between them is either TCP or UDP not HTTP. It is used to enable two applications to communicate with each other and exchange data. Remoting is mainly used to access remote functionality because it provides the ability to instantiate remote objects. That's the brief answer and here is the detailed answer.

Hi CodeCruiser:,

For networking (WAN) using VPN, better use Remote Application or Web Application?

Thank you.

Depends on your application to be honest. A web application hosts the functionality on the server which is accessed by the clients. Remoting is used to access functionality both ways. What are you trying to implement?

We have a warehouse that far away from head office. The warehouse use warehouse application to enter the goods in or out data.

1. For using web application we should use web server.
2. For using remote application may be should not use web server?

Thank you.

To use remoting, you would probably use static IP addresses. I think you could go for web application in this scenario if you need to view warehouse reports etc. If you just need to view the warehouse information then you dont need the remoting.

I think a web application is suitable for your situation given that you make it secure enough.

Speed wise i think both methods are compareable although remoting may have an edge. Cost wise depends on your skills. You may already know how to develop web application  but you may have to learn remoting. Also, with web applications, the development is on server only but with remoting you need to develop applications on both end points which would mean more development time.

Remoting is mostly used where functionality is to be shared between two applications. It could be between two businesses. Or it could be that a company is publishing the functionality for other companies to use and you could access that through remoting. Its kind of webservices. Suppose you have a Product class on a remote server(in warehouse) and you want to create a new product on the server. Then you would create a new object of this class remotely on the server. Then after setting the properties of the object appropriately, you could call its Save method to save that new product to the database on the server.

Hope it helps.
