Connecting to a .net remoting server over lan

I am connecting to a .net remoting server over a LAN to retrieve data.  When it is not being updated with high frequency real-time data, I can retrieve the data I need.

However, when it is being updated with real-time data I get the following error:

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it.

Any ideas how to get the data?  The data retrieval should be given priority over the updates.

I think i need a channel / port for each user connecting and one for the real-time updates.

Any guidance here would be helpful...

do you have any examples of what you are discussing?

The server has been adapted from some code written by others.

there are no log files as such.  The logs are available but not persisted.

how do I keep a connection open for all users so that listens for new connections?

so that it does not lock out other users?

      int PortNumber = 10000;
      TcpListener MyListener = new TcpListener(PortNumber);
         TcpClient MyClient = MyListener.AcceptTcpClient();
         NetworkStream MyNetStream = MyClient.GetStream();
         // star new thread and pass instance of "MyNetStream"
on the Client Thread
  call MyClient.Close(); when finished

Open in new window

So you suggest I use System.Net to maintain a shared port rather than .net remoting?
