http listener project

I want to build a simple http listener project.

It will listen on our network and send asynchronous data to a wcf

Should I do this as a Windows service?

"http listener" is a web server.  If you already have a web server on that machine it will not share port 80 with your program.  You would have to create your program as a proxy server which is how network monitors like Wireshark and Fiddler work.  And also your anti-virus.

I've been tasked by management to build a stand alone listener

This will listen for our VOIP sockets and pass through data eventually to our server. (DB)

Thanks.  I at least have something to take to management.
You're welcome, good luck with your project.
