I am trying to get my Windows program to communicate with a voice program via the Internet.  So I need to create a listener for incoming XML and need to send XML responses.

How do I do that?

Thanks,

Even though you will only be sending and receiving XML I believe that the best way to do it would be with a socket application. Create a TCPListener and listen to a port you wish on the server. You will need to parse the received string since it will be coming as a byte array and decode the XML you need. You can send encode your response in an XML format and send it.

Alternatively you could create a webservice that will get your input and send a response but I don't know if that's acceptable by you. I would honestly prefer the sockets method as it can work asynchronously.

When I listen to a socket, must I have a thread to do just that continuously?  Or can I check every second or two?
