Looking for some professional advice and possibly some code samples, I'm developing a solution for TCP Clients/TCP Listeners(no direct communication between then, only talking to other listeners and clients.)
This is basically a heartbeat detection to see if the listeners and clients are available for connection.
Once we know their status we will update our DB table to say that they are online or offline.
has anyone ever put this in place and could anyone suggest best way to do this?
You could do a search for Network Discovery or AutoDiscover Services if you want to learn more about it, but a decent example can be found here:
