Thanks flyingmoose,

There are some interesting points in your comments.

You are probably right about transferring through HTTP. I guess that passing through firewalls does not mean HTTP transfer... and obviously would make the protocol much less efficient because of the inherent HTTP overheads. I agree I thought a little fast. But transferring data through port 80 as an IE plugin is still my idea, because when you get executed inside IE you are seen as part of IE by the local firewall so you won't have to explain how to configure the firewall to the users. (Just recall that ICF will be enabled by default in XP SP2.)

I'd also like to mention that I don't think the processor is the bottleneck in this kind of application and that it is much more probably the network (yep, many users are still having modem connections!)

Well, thanks anyway!

Gaggio
