Though HTTP isn't intended for keeping persistent connections, you can set up keep-alives for the corresponding socket:

Qlemo,
 I'm trying to slog through the examples on the links.

Do youhave a "cut through the red tape" example code?

I don;t need you to write my program.
Just a "keypoint" start

Sorry, not really. I would have to mock up something without testing it ;-).
You will probably use this method http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/e160993d.aspx?cs-save-lang=1&cs-lang=vb#code-snippet-1
to allow KeepAlives on an already open socket. I assume you have all the other code ready (open up a socket and such).
