Have developed a wcf download application,where the client downloads a file from the service.It also supports Resume function.Binding used is BasicHttpBinding.
I want the following in my application and need an idea on the same:-
* a folder at the service is tracked for new files or changes.A new file when in the folder,is to be sent to the client(ie downloaded).
Now here,it is the service who needs to indicate the client when it receives a new folder.And then the client downloads it.For this ,i will have to use HttpDuplex (callbacks).right??
But ,is HttpDuplex a better option??..will it work fine ?? has HttpDuplex has some problem with ports used and firewals and others??..I have no idea and end up guessing .!!!
Is there any other binding that i can use,so that the service informs client about a arrival of a new file ,so that the client downloads it??
what about using net.tcp endpoint to inform the client of the new file and using BasicHttp to download file to the client?i mean 2 endpoints at service??
My criteria is the downloading should be via http and port 80.!!
Can anyone give me a clear solution..Im looking for it...do plz let me know what i can do to achieve the above..Waiting for an answer...
