Can .NET Remoting mimic a scripting PHP page?

Hello experts.  I've got a phone system that can send values to a web page which in turn scripts a response back to it.  Problem is that the PHP page resides outside of our system and I'd like it to reside inside.  The other issue is, it seems like a lot of hassle to be hosting a website to handle the posts and responses from the system and I'm wondering if there is such a type of visual basic program that can be made to do the same work?  

I've heard of .NET Remoting and I'm wondering if that would suit what I need and if so, is there a real world example out there?  

Thanks a bunch

Remoting is a client/server technology which allows clients to instantiate objects on server and utilize them. Its like execute code remotely on a remote server. You could use remoting in your scenario but i think a more suitable option would be to use ASP.NET Webservices. These services are easy to host and could even be hosted on SQL Server.

Hi CodeCruiser,

Do you know of an example of webservices being hosted on SQL Server? How would that work perse?
